Digital and Analogue in Dialogue

One year ago, when talking to a friend
online and walking with the laptop in my
hands to show her my flat, she suddenly
warned me: “Please don’t drop me!”
Fascinated by this moment of paradox, and
taking it as a starting point I made a one
year investigation between the relationship
of body and technologies. I asked the
question, in what ways can I bridge the
perception between digital and analogue

As the conclusion of “Digitalogue” two
products came into existence.
The first product is a method, developed
along the research process. The second
product is a project created with this
method, thematically looking at the evolution
of how communication tools changed
our body languages and gestures. When
looking at the online world, the world we
see on the screen, there are many actions,
spaces and symbols we live in and relate
to. But they are only processed visually.
Without denying the digital world, how
would it be possible to bridge the digital
and analogue space with a humane
attitude? To connect the analogue and
digital spaces, “Digitalogue” is proposing
to rethink the online space by translating its
imaginary spaces with our own gestures.
