Elsewhere Node (Notes on Antidepressants) (2021)

About this work

Elsewhere Node (Notes on Antidepressants) is a web based artwork combining code generated imagery, text and sound to explore how the shiny-hyper-glossy objects of digital images, which can often feel cold and distant when we look at them, might produce new tacit forms of experience when they collide with personal narratives and tales from the other side of the screen. The soundtrack to the work is a voice recording of recent writing exploring and describing the world as I see it – my personal day to day experiences. The tone and content of the text mirrors and describes my subjectivity as it is affected by antidepressants.
