WANG & SÖDERSTRÖM


We create imaginaries of the present and future through digital narratives. Occupying the liminal realm between physical and digital, we seek to combine technological advancements with sensual qualities to activate a digital sensuousness.



Flatscreen






Flatscreen is an investigation of the depth perception of human vision. An image is a 2D projection of the world, but hints in the image can give rich three dimensional perceptions. A translucent material gives cues of depth and helps us navigate through flatness.

The translucency in the digital printed image helps bring out the physical in it. Whilst the translucency in the cloudy cubes containing the sculptures, blurs some of their physical attributes. By perceiving the objects through a flat surface makes us look at them more like how we look at digital images. Translucency both hides and exaggerates, a gateway between the digital and physical world.
