-----Press Release Sept. 1994 -
[the clearing] is an interactive computer artwork that explores the construction of cultural meaning through the language of the technologicallly mediated Western news' representation of the conflict in Bosnia.
with the assisstance of the mouse, viewers explore the surface of a moving hunting photograph. By this action, the viewer scans a range of topics on Bosnia and can choose any of 30 categories to examine news quotes set against the photograph. Three separate points of view are given. The Bosnian Muslims' , the Serbs' and outside news commentaries.
The viewer's experience of information search through this computer program interface is designed to reveal the traces of vision technologies' origins in military and medical applications - a particular kind of seeing that can be described as "search and destroy" or " hold still while I examine" .
Keywords: world event, sub-text, Balkan, dissemination, information, ethnic genocide, Western interests, media industry, Muslim, frame of reference, Europe, historical memory, narratives in context.
These images are from "The Annotated Self," a project that includes three separate photographic series dealing with issues of consciousness, psychological identity and memory. The source for the images in the "Cultures" series are photographs of doodles drawn on the margins of notebooks, day planners, post-its and scattered notepads. Drawn mostly while on the phone and without any artistic intention, they constitute a sort of automatic writing. The doodles are distilled from an unconscious creative urge which, as I see it, is linked to the basic biological process that enables the evolution of life. -Sammy Cucher
