digital landfill: A Strategic retreat (2020-NOW)
Mitchell Foucault once asked, "What are we in our actuality?" Amongst the rapid advancement of contemporary digital technology and our everyday engagement with social media, maybe it is dire for us to reestablish the technology of the self through a communal pause from the desire to consume. Digital Landfill is an internet-based ongoing project in response to this increasing aggression. A stubborn retaliation with the risk of becoming invisible. Various abstract digital landscapes are created using images fragments collected through social media posts and photographs of physical debris like aluminum foil, etc. The project invites viewers to linger and contemplate instead of consuming. Reclaiming the leisure aspect of our time that it is now so saturated with fillers and routines. Accumulating counter aesthetic to the smoothness that may eventually overflow back to social media.
