Pulse | Motion Pictures
By Ronald Bal
Bal examines how the digital world affects our bodies, and by extension, how the digital world determines time, place and space. The digital world has become part of our ‘natural’ habitus and thus gives rise to new forms of perception and identity. We have all become cyborgs as Donna Haraway famously claimed. The concepts interiority and exteriority are central in this study. Interior: body, individual, mind and state of being. Exterior: public space, language and society. The project consists of short films and live performances, which are connected to each other by a narrative structure. Pulse | Motion Pictures is part of his research project Pulse.
