SPATIAL DISORIENTATION (SD)

Spatial Disorientation (SD) is a series of photograms and symbols that record the coded, spoken and visual metaphors of the cyber—aero media cult. Conceived as an alphabet to be interpreted in its entirety or as stand-alone letters, this system of glyphs was made using light and artifacts extracted from outdated computers, television sets, aerodynamic forms, molding clay, and optical/mechanical tools. SD functions as a “silhouette of power” (to borrow German media theorist Friedrich Kittler’s term) and as an interpretive glossary of computer-scientific, aeronautical, and ideological terms.
