Employing software that computes probabilities every second, Forward is a generative video installation showcasing two digital tunnels that transform shape, pattern and direction through an infinite series of variables. Random audiovisual iterations that are never the same, the tunnels are also a reference to the future – so unstable and fragile that the very act of thinking about them can change their course. They exist in a state of constant evolution, redrawing themselves every instant, underpinning the futility of being too concerned or anxious about what’s to come.
The Canadian projects are part of the culture program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2021 and are supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Canada (Embassy of Canada to Germany) and the Québec Government Office in Berlin.
