    Avatars just like people get jobless too, many of these speaking characters, virtual representatives and our alter egos are patiently waiting for someone to employ them, waiting until they either get a job or get outdated and trashed. I took few of these text to speech avatars and used them to tell the truth behind searching for a job, the truth behind the job applications. What do we do when applying for a job? We tell little lies about ourselves to fit in to the high requirements of the applications. We usually say all the best we can think about ourselves to get it. Our job applications are a sort of lying interfaces. Our virtual identities can provide us with the safety where we can tell lies, but also the truth. And these avatars are telling it. They are telling the real curriculums. Admitting that we are also lazy, not cooperative, inpatient, intolerant, have mental, alcoholic and drug problems, are badly educated and that we hate authorities. People are just like technology replaceable. People get replaced with youngsters and technology gets replaced with a new versions and new technological paradigms

              There's John a businessman from Louisiana, François the banker from London and Antoine a trader from Switzerland. Together they reflect on their career and on the choices they made and the ones they didn't. Choices that made them successful, and into who they are today. As we get to know them, we also get to know someone else. Someone who may have been less lucky in his career. Or maybe we see what the true face of success can be. 2011: Open M, Museum M, Leuven (BE) (July 9 – Aug) 2010: Platform 3, Munich, Exchange relations (DE) 2010: Chicago Underground Film Festival (US) 2010: Rencontre. int.

In every Transmediale festival shit just get wacked. Stuff is used so often so damn much people don't even know what's going on." This year I my participation in Transmdiale took place via the Art Hack Day; a 48 hours (but in reality more like 24 hours) hackathon in which a selected group of artists and programmers set out to create all the works that will later be featured in the main exhibition. I proposed a couple of works but finally I made "In the Highest in the Best: Welcome To Post Digital Afterglow". The work is a Transmediale B/Lingo. consists of 6 bingo cards that expose the (evolving) vernaculars of the Transmediale website between 2009-2014. The keywords are derived from scraping and subsequently frequency organizing its terms. On the floor lies the interpretation of this years (2014) three most used keywords: post, digital and afterglow.

                      My thoughts about this installation were that I wanted to create a reality-hack. While creating this piece, which shall emulate an out of body experience, I had in mind that people should begin to feel and be conscious about themselves again. During the digital bubble people started to only either think about the future or the past, but don’t embrace the situation, the moment, the spontaneous. What I wanted to find out with this piece is to keep on searching for a clear idea of what reality is nowadays. This obviously changed. I wanted to investigate how the human perception of the world changes once you’ve directly and awake watched yourself from a third person perspective and need to shift your thinking of the relation of space, reality and yourself. “After the Digital Breakdown and the collapse of our digital infrastructure we need to find clarity again. We need to get back to reality by using what we’re left with. Technology.” specific Black Yarn, web cam, Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset The camera is pointing at the participant from a typical surveillance camera perspective, while its video stream is being displayed in the Oculus Rift. installation / Marcel Schwittlick video / Simon Vorgrimmler sound / Aleksi Perälä

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
