Catch Data - Escape Data
Mehmet Erkök, Ahmet Sertaç Öztürk
Data production is intense as it has never been before, sometimes confronting us much more than our needs. While pleasing some of us, this also fills some of us with the urge to escape.
This kinetic work is triggered by the viewer who twists the lever on the body. Digital indicators - one human figure and about 8-10 monitors- arranged around a vertical axis start spining all together in a row. The viewer is free to twist the lever whichever direction he likes, while the figure escapes from the data in one direction, catches it in the other, depending on the viewers decision.
