Phantom SurfaceGraduation music video – 2016
The movie phantom surface blurs the border between the real and virtual. While being embedded within the reality of the screen surface the body shifts from the physical presence to its virtual counterpart and the border between the two has become blurred. At one point they exist simultaneously. The difference between artificial and organic surfaces, ephemeral and tangible ones, has disappeared. They have all become part of a reality that is being constructed between me and the hardware and software that i use, guiding my perception of space and matter. Human skin, and habitable space, have been shattered among diffused surfaces. Cinematic shots of skin meet sublime, coveted technological objects. It is no longer clear which one feels more intimate and familiar, and which doesn’t. Together, they open up a visceral hyper-real space of identity.
