Projection for the next three thousand years

Considering the prospect of living in an age in which fossil energy resources may be exhausted, will we still be able to make and store still and moving images? Through sculptural works in media environments, and installations themed on social media and data, the artist aims to inspire viewers to reconsider the meaning of seeing things by way of media. Projection for the next three thousand years is a work in which she focuses on stone as a recording medium, and a means for capturing traces of image data and projection methods. By illuminating photo sculptures carved into stone with a laser processing machine, the work harks back to the dawning of visual media, while at once suggesting future possibilities in terms of archiving.
