2012, HD video (slient)
also available as a screesaver.
i don't know my brother's address.
i don't know my girlfriend's phone number.
i don't know my roommate's or landlord's or workplace phone number.
i don't need to know.
the ways in which digitization has changed the dissemination, legibility, and reception of media, i don't need to burden my brain with such details. this kind of data is for our devices, exiled to external storage as part of the information infrastructure.
the new network is different. faster, cheaper, unstable, uncertain,
there is no single source, no one all-knowing tome that can wrangle this wild wirelesses.
as a result when the lights go out i'm even more out of touch, excommunicated without my prosthetic powered-devices to light up and dial up my family and friends to borrow a candle….or batteries.
