Past touch, Present form

Video installation with iPhone

Aleksandra Kwiatkowska (Graphic Design)

In-between places and spaces, navigating interfaces. Here and there. Swipe right. Touch to switch. Mobility of life manifested via mobile. How far can one engage in tapping and pressing to, literally, stay in touch? Constructed from a mixed logic of memories, facts, and tensions, Aleksandra Kwiatkowska’s video is a fragmented account of her life exploring alternative mechanisms of belonging and presence. She is the subject of her own video, but at its completion she becomes a mere record of hand gestures. Can the friction between visible and invisible traces become tangible if you touch it?
