Berlin and LA-based artist Warren Neidich has added his part to the Great Internet Chatter with notable Italian political philosopher Franco “Bifo” Berardi playing mouth-piece, literally. A highly conceptual artist currently focussed on cognitive capitalism, this recent work uses a split screen to zoom in on Berardi reciting a random poem of HTML code.
With one side filmed at a distance, the other close up, Neidich explores the very animalistic reality of man in cyberspace that no amount of coding and programming can hide. Its asynchronous cadence making things disjointed and feel not quite right. How’s that for an opinion?**
