DITHER is a two part installation that explores the body as form. Through our body we interact with the world. It gives us a voice, our senses and an ability to connect with others, but in a digital age where we can create our own virtual bodies and identities – what importance does the physical human body have today? It could be said that a vast number of people on this earth communicate to each other behind an avatar or a coded image [jpeg / png / gig ] via social media, email, messaging services or video. Do we hide behind our digital avatar and do these digital depictions become more valuable than our physical form when we try to create an identity for ourselves? This is what we are exploring for GLITCH 2016.
