Perry Hoberman ::
The Sub-Division of the Electric Light, 1996

interactive work on CD-ROM, part of the artintact3- CD-ROM [1996]

coproduction of Perry Hoberman and the ZKM | Institute for Visual Media

    The Sub-Division of the Electric Light is a nostalgia machine allowing the viewer to move from room to room and operate ancient machine and slide projectors loaded with audiovisual footage of strangely shifting scenarios. This active intervention into the flow of time itself creates a landscape of the history of media while at the same time referring to the increasing speed of our present day consumption of new technologies and to the loss inherent in progress.
