Title: Screenage Angst
Statement: I made "screenage angst" on an iphone 4 in 2012 as a weird dedication to violent arcade games I played as a kid. I started recording it in the Santa Monica Pier arcade in LA and began collaging it soon after. I was excited about this feeling I got there, loud explosions and faces covered in strobing white light, everyone looking passive, surrounded in totally dated digital chaos. I felt it was a hyper or fast forward version of how we just move thru situations, subconsciously, unaffected, gathering points. The rest of the shots all tie into this feeling of disregard to me, things that are actually intense but we ignore. A highway built thru a cemetery, flushing blood down the toilet, a huge data base of criminal records, half mast flags, all just a piece of the visual poem that accompanies the narrated piece.

Statement: Our physical and virtual realities are becoming increasingly intertwined. Technologies such as VR, augmented reality, wearables, and the internet of things are pointing to a world where technology will envelop every aspect of our lives. It will be the glue between every interaction and experience, offering amazing possibilities, while also controlling the way we understand the world. Hyper-Reality attempts to explore this exciting but dangerous trajectory.

Title: Computer Visions
Statement: Philosophical questions for the near future
Artist: Camilla Edström Ödemark
Statement: Mask yourself. Change the premises from where you speak. Hide your true intentions and become the one who is silenced. Remember that no-one likes a bully. Instead, talk about the war from an underdogs point of view. Convince the citizens of your country that they are under attack, and that they are losing. Step in as a hero. Lead your troops to the barricades. Never lose your mask. Go boldly into the future and forget about your past.
