Black Boxes


Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne

"The Black Box - according to Flusser, 'a complex part of an electronic circuit, which is intentionally omitted on the sketch of a bigger circuit (...)'.


Everyday technology develops a new environment for humanity to live within. But are people aware of the change in its totality? What is there to be unravelled inside the black boxes of our techno-society circuit?"


Black Boxes was shown at Newcastle University for Borges's MFA Interim Show. The space is a circuit to be completed by the spectators' passage, who will connect its various points. Through the use of animation and optical illusion techniques, the artist invites them to reflect over each element, along with their own presence.
