Interruption, pause, expectation. Ellipsis is in essence an operator of thought, it signifies the omitted verbal cues, the elusiveness of characters. It provides a halt in order for juxtaposition to work, for the relationship between parts to be reflected upon by the viewer.
“Ellipsis” aims to touch upon the subject of a hybrid (neural plus digital) form of memory and recollection in the post future imaginary. More importantly, in a technologically enriched era, human-human interaction is rendered fragmented and somewhat objectified. However, interaction may be in fact artificially augmented in a digital environment.
Subjects assume their avatar-like personalities effortlessly and appear at ease while exploring the confines of the digital medium. By mirroring reactions and maintaining eye contact, a primitive form of connection is achieved. Along these lines, the video motion detection effects are highly suggestive of algorithm training patterns of AI neurons. Notably, presence is broken by mundane tasks. An -already retro- memory of bold playfulness is stored.
