CONNECTION—CONJUNCTION, 2022  
Digital print on vinyl film


This work was done for the exhibition Lo(l) - Embodied Language at the Kunsthaus Hamburg.

Two overlapping words «connection-conjunction», refer to the terminology of Franco "Bifo" Berardi. According to him, nowadays, conjunction is replaced by connection. Connection is a form of communication through machines and their's algorithms. Conjunction offers a collective subjectivity; it is a communication that includes sensory perception.

I made concrete poetry with both words, playing around with (dis)connection of letters. Depending on the viewer, these two words may be seen differently. In this way, looking at the work creates conjunction, as the instability of perceptions and reactions is characteristic of a human being.
