“Meanwhile, At Home", a research between a dialogue and correlations between: human body - landscape / nature - contemporary technology. In this particular case, related to where we inhabit [our individual or global concept of Home, the individual idea or perspective where we social and physically belong, move or be aimed towards: House - Planet – landscape - social-network /…] 

An era saturated with interfaces controlled by artificial satellites that act as new divinities and influence great part of our post-digital habitat, lives and homes, influencing and dictating our daily habits and performances. Entities that correlate to out bodies and minds, working has prostheses in our every day habitat, where speed of a post-digital generation dictates time and artificially replaces the natural / analogic world. Downloading reality, scrolling for new stories, swiping relationships, where everything is stored into a cloud or depending on the Wi-Fi. A particular moment where human body creates a physical distance from matter, towards dematerialization. 

In this “Home” is created an inflammation, a question - that could be posted in every house in our contemporary society - Relating to the concept of geographical acupuncture, this installation works as a needle in a body (a living organism) that - somehow - has nowadays a distance from the natural.  In situ, an installation that interacts with the viewer as a social and visual seismograph presenting objects that create a dialogue – in-between - the digital and analogue. These objects create a visual reference to a physical internet that refers to an idea of distance/proximity from ourselves and from the natural / analogic world. Here technology and the digital will be the element that remembers and re-connects us to the elements that were here even before our physical presence.
