Reminiscent of home, the exhibition, containing personal footage and stream of consciousness text explores the rift between the perceived, lived, dreamed and experienced worlds created by an online connection. Specifically dealing with times when more intimate moments are shared the video installations draw attention to the differences between mental perception and bodily experience that are entangled in these experiences and often brought to light the moment an online connection is severed – the benefits, limitations and depth of the virtual connection.

The viewer is asked to take a moment, to be confronted not only with the contents of the videos but also their related personal experiences. What kind of relationship can be had when you can’t look another in the eye?

This project was supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike).

Bio:

Dana Neilson is a multidisciplinary artist working with installation, photography, ceramics, and video art. Her work process is slow and intuitive, often guided by or scavenged from the environment she finds herself in. Betwixt curiosity and dissection she pulls apart different ideas and concepts searching for a deeper understanding of relationships, experience, influence and connection – more questions arise. She holds a MA from Aalto University, and BFA in Photography from Concordia University. Her work has been exhibited in Europe and North America.
