Technology expands a person's abilities, allowing it to almost beat itself and the laws of nature by stopping time, transforming space and matter. At least in a recording. It is amazing what technology can do. And slightly frightening. Iron floors move like beasts, you can hear voices from the past, and the artificial intelligence in learning to explore the world and process an incredible amount of information. Will it beat humanity? Are the unexplained text messages coming from the deceased? Will it ever be possible to be in two places at once?
When interacting with technologies, people often have exaggerated expectations and unfair prejudice towards the true performance of technology. At the exhibition "in the Clipboard", Liepaja's New Media artists are exploring what the Dutch media theorist Eric Kluitenberg calls imaginary media, by demystifying technologies in their work and letting the audience physically step into the image rooms and explore what is saved on the clipboard.
