Excerpt of video

2013

Single screen video (2 min. 59 sec.)

 

Anne Haaning was awarded The Danish Solo Award in The Spring Exhibition, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, 2013, for her video How to Other.

 

The video investigates the underlying structures of digital representation, particularly the paradoxical relation between subject and object – depicted and depiction. By examining the reality and perpetual nature of digital representation it tries to disclose the oscillations between the dead and the living in the virtual sphere. Through ranking contradictory statements – visual as well as audible – alongside each-other the work ultimately takes control over the embedded meanings, and gives way for new precarious and ambiguous readings of the content, similar in kind to the real time editing of our private and public news feeds online.
