"flo\/\/" by Malgosia Woznica
Woźnica, a multimedia artist whose alias V5MT is an abbreviation for the region in the brain responsible for the perception of motion, uses streams of Internet data and software (ranging from simple lo-fi applications to powerful complex workflows) to create digital artworks. Woźnica’s flo\/\/ presents rich, colorful, scrolling images with exposed distortions and glitches. The visuals unfold slowly in a vertically scanning stream of imagery based on art history, pop culture, and cryptographic typography. flo\/\/ demonstrates that technology is imperfect, evolving, and representative only of the viewer’s tangible surroundings.
