[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Eduardo Kac — Maybe Then, If Only As

Artist Statement

This work is a subjective statement about the relationship between the elusiveness of language and the unpredictable and turbulent behavior of nature. This relationship is suggested when the viewer perceives words breaking down and reconstructing other words in an immaterial holographic space. The words are perceived only for a brief moment and are interrupted by the presence of other animated words.
