"A travel to the Amazon region (2013) in Colombia with the Kinect as recording device created a series of digital memoirs spelled out on systematic screen glitches, comes out now to report a technological relationship to a life-historical category. The representation of the journey—itself as complex problematic event—together with the horde of visual artifacts tell a set of interfacial stories with my co-travelers. This project addresses the splicing of direct and tactile human perception of reality with another reality, one that is mediated and technical. It is an aesthetic dream, dream of isomorphism between the discursive object and the visible object in the Amazonian forests."
