Joscha Steffens – TEEN SPIRIT ISLAND - DREAM / HACK
The video loop Dream / Hack shows rotating pictures in deep red and blue light. On each picture we see the mouse of a computer and the accompanying hand that is using and controlling it. Hectic movements, clicks, more similar to shivering than to an actual touch. These touches with fingertip are not only controlling the avatar but together represent the only real physical contact to a digital world and its virtual slaughter. The video has no sound, the rhythm is only defined by the movements of hands, mouses and the alternating red and blue. The pictures for this piece were recorded at the world largest LAN Party ’Dreamhack’ in the Swedish countryside of Jönköping.
