A live work where digital and analogue media collide. This work uses the Internet as a central point of departure in that the script is taken from the Wikipedia entry for the word 'slideshow'. Words are randomly extracted and transferred onto photographic 35mm slide to be projected with analogue carousel slide projectors taking the audience into a visual wordplay, from Google to PowerPoint presentation. The sound of projectors is manipulated gradually into a clashing, confrontational, digital/analogue crescendo. 'Slideshow' investigates how information is sourced, navigated and considered in a culture of accelerating mediation. It posits the notion of a post-digital era in which we are increasingly faced with challenging questions of authenticity and authority.
