Inventing a poetic path through images created with Louis Daguerre's centuries-old photographic device, 16mm film cameras, pixelated video game consoles, early smartphones, and contemporary computer interfaces, the work asks: what aspects of reality have these different technologies been designed to document? What phenomenon, either too slow or too fast to be recorded, have escaped their capture? Are there still dimensions of our experience on Earth that have never been visually documented, and for which photographic technologies are yet to be invented?   An investigation of the explicit and unspoken ideologies encapsulated in technology, the video unfolds as a web of apparently unrelated stories, progressively revealing patterns of technologically-determined political erasure.
