Zero Insertion

The prototype for Zero Insertion visualises the consequences of a virtual world gone wrong, the moment the Internet ‘breaks’ or ceases to transmit information. Disrupted feeds and the deterioration of images through missing data – so called packet loss – speak to processes of delay, misdirection and corruption. Our world of instant virtual access is transformed, generating spectral presences of disruption, out of place and out of time.
