The project in brief:
Still processing… is a multimedia installation that questions mortality statistics in current armed conflicts around the world. The notes, sounds, rhythm and visual representation are built from these statistics. At the heart of the installation, as the actor of the information they receive, the spectator observes the sound and visual translation of the figures and can thus better understand the terrible reality it reports.
The installation Still processing… seeks to give a sensory, almost corporeal form to these figures. It thus plays on the purely statistical representations disseminated and repeated by the mass media and reveals to our sensibility what the simple repeated data ends up hiding: the unbearable reality of the number of victims. The incessant flow of data delivered by the different media causes an astonishing form of abstraction, a protocol to which we hardly pay attention anymore. Conversely, Still processing… opens a parenthesis of time to try to apprehend the fact of war through the singular, but essential, prism of the human cost and offers us a tangible way to realise this.
