Interpreting Present


“We cannot grasp objects cognitively; but we can allude to objects through metaphor and other aesthetic practices.”, G. Harman

What if our daily routines were mis/interpreted in the future as monuments or artworks as if our memory of them was nonexistent?



Recontextualizing our daily visual and acoustic surroundings changes our perspective about them. Skype family snapshot from a random conversation or a Google search interface can take on another meaning. By changing the medium, could they be exhibited as certain archaeological artifacts from 2014? As if they won’t change their appearance in the matter of weeks but are a permanent mark on our society, like a red-figure Athenian vase from 530 B.C. or a renaissance portrait from once upon a time.
