Trailer of the video "ZoOm into my Room" by Maria Korporal
with music by Edoardo Pistolesi Somigli
Our social and private life has undergone a drastic turn towards digitalisation as a consequence of the pandemic that originated in the beginning of 2020. Human contacts now often are replaced by video-chat Zoom or Jitsy.
In this video I try to show the human experience of loneliness and impotence during their „meetings“ in cyberspace. Even if the light image accurately depicts the person, eye contact is impossible. We look at a screen that shows a simulacra of some other human being and of ourselves.
The video develops seemless in three stages: in the "introduction" images of video chats trasfer proper light beams from chat rooms into real rooms, followed by what could be called the phase of "creation", in which a lonely person who’s chatting tries to pull the simulacrum out of the light beams, zoom it into her room and bring it to life, and thirdly the phase "longing", in which the eternal longing for the deep contact with the other is expressed.
In his science fiction novel Neuromancer, published in 1984, William Gibson wrote the revealing phrase: "Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation ..." In the last decades we saw this global development coming about, but the Covid virus has accelerated this significantly. However, the video goes further back in time. Cinema lovers will unfailingly recognize the references to „Maschinen-Maria“ of Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927), another visionary of the technological future. And the profiles in the last scene, which hesitantly approach each other and break away again and again, are ancient Greco-Roman sculptures, simulacra from the cradle of our culture.
