Life Needs Internet (installation)
Life Needs Internet shows eight handwritten letters in which the authors write about how they feel about the influence of the internet on daily life. The letters are combined with video portraits of their authors. Each handwritten letter slowly masks it’s video portrait creating a layered image of written text and it’s author.
The letters are written by eight different people, ranging from a tribe member in West-Papua to an engineer from Singapore or a artist from The Netherlands. The eight letters were chosen to portray a 0% to 100% impact of the Internet. Together these eight letters portray the evolution of the global digitalisation and it’s impact on different cultures.
