SPECFLIC 2.5, 2008
SAN DIEGO MUSEUM of ART, San Diego, CA.
The entire SPECFLIC project is meant to encourage public reflection and discussion and perhaps even heated debate what we think about the cultural changes instigated by the move from analog (material) to digital (information/data). I design the projects with cross-generational audiences in mind, so that different ideas and attitudes toward these changes can be articulated not just by myself, but by those who encounter and participate in the work. The InfoSpherian in SPECFLIC 2.5 installation enacts a sort of comic and (for some) dystopic future where the library and the book have almost completely de-materialized into the InfoSphere.
