Tangible Data 1
"Tangible Data" is an oxymoron. Or so it seems. In this series, Baron Lanteigne materialises our relation to software and telecommunications. While data remains in flux, communication depends on tangible infrastructures and devices to circulate. Baron Lanteigne demonstrates the constant and seamless manipulation of interfaces. He brings forth what everyone might forget: access to online content is mediated and involves body interactions just as much as any IRL experience.
The series includes various works and media that the artist presents depending on the exhibition context to imbricate displays within displays, mixing tangible and virtual elements. For its first feature in the metaverse, looped videos ‘Tangible Data 1,4 and 5’ appear alongside ‘80 Gbytes SATA HDD’, a virtual sculpture whose rigid shape has become malleable, as if moulded under our grasp."
