[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Donato Di Blasi – Espace de Déplacement

Artist Statement

This work addresses a space within which one can travel, a space which is is places working toghether to create an entirely new environment. An index tells the user how to move around the space, using a fourteen-inch monitor and a mouse. The user encounters the index several times during a visit, but only once at the beginning. One meets parts of the summary scattered in all nine places visited, allowing one to return to the beginning but never twice in the same way.
