This video shows excerpts from SWITCH, a body of 20 videos viewable at: Switch
Situated firmly within the landscape of the home-lab, Switch shows electrical devices being controlled by tangible, mutable, and messy interfaces in place of slick, ergonomically designed plastic devices to spotlight of the absurd human obsession with appending our bodies and our senses with high-tech gadgetry. But Switch is magic in its truest sense of the word: it is an illusion. Switch exists where the gap of visual suggestion is filled by a viewer’s projection of possibility. Switch, therefore, refers both to the literal act of electrical switches and to the more subtle switch within our perceptions about authenticity and falsity, revealing our own willingness to believe in technology.
