Invitation to see and hear:
1) The award-winning net art work
/ source / (postfactual), 2017
Synopsis: In Timo Kahlen’s new interactive net art work / source / (postfactual) , 2017 - just awarded an Honorary Mention at the Junge Akademie’s and ZKM’s prize question “What’s the Net Listening To ?” (Was hört das Netz ?) - the viewer is invited to search for reliable sources, for valid ‘facts’ , nodes and information on the internet.
A seemingly void, monochrome white surface is all it shows; and frustrates the viewer with a mouse cursor, which is difficult to locate, to control and direct, as isolated potential ‘facts’ pop up in interaction with the cursor : appearing but distorted, head-over and uncomfortably remote, as if projected onto the reverse side of the computer screen. Accumulating alternative facts are accompanied by outbursts of sound and bustle, only to be quenched and extinguished shortly afterwards.
