Artist Statement:


    A networked performance, a meditation on how our consciousness can be, and indeed is, distributed across space, time and locale. These omnipresent signals are a new kind of fictional species that exist with/in us, regularly and increasingly, our habitual use of networked communication systems (GSM, Bluetooth, WIFI, RFID, QR, AR, Radio). The work asks what it means to be human by giving a poetic account of how, as a species, we engage with ubiquitous transmissions. An expanded audience can interact with this contemplative work, via twitter: a #starlight will embed into the work’s mise-en-scene. sister0.org/?is-starlight-a-wifi-signal
