From Digital to Analogue
To graduate at an Academy for Digital Art without a computer, is that at all possible?
How does the computer influence our lives?
With these questions Jeroen van Loon started his project. For two months long Jeroen van loon did not touch his computer neither privately or as a Digital Media Artist and documented this in his Analogue Blog.
From the research of this blog, he created this installation which is a interactive journey through different generations and the changing influence of the personal computer on their daily life. Four computer screens hang, one behind the other, as a portrait. Each of them with their own theme e.g, social communication, information use or dependence. For every computerscreen there are four different x-rays, each a generation, from the ‘50’s until the ‘80’s.
By hanging a x-ray in front of a computerscreen, the author and the personal computer itself exhibit the content of the letter and it is in this way that a new consciousness on our digital world becomes apparent and so does the place of the computer in it.
