The installation “You could call it complexities and uncertainties, with openings” (2018) shown at Analog LX, Lisbon, emphasized the material and object collaborations of intra-active digital images. Featuring large digital prints on silk of underwater analog photography, the images intertwine the optical refraction and movement of water, the action of the camera, printer, and the scanner, the weave of the silk, and the bodies both myself and distant silk worms. When digitally scanning the negatives at very high resolution, the jagged edge of the film panel and the dust on the scanner were revealed. These details, usually excluded by photographers as problematic blemishes, became a motif for the agency of uncertain objects. I subsequently extrapolated the enlarged forms of the dust into sculptures that seem to be stretching, wriggling, and seeking. As a symbol for everything and nothing at the same time - the earth, mortality, and waste matter - dust unravels in many directions. What is it? Where is it from? Is it human?
