Geocinema considers planetary-scale networks – cell phones, surveillance cameras, satellites, geosensors – as a vastly distributed cinematic apparatus. Their “stitching” processes are used for imperial observation, surveillance, verification, and tracking. Whether planned or accidental, they contribute to a visual culture for an uncertain future-present and yet, this “camera” is framing a form of ‘geocinema’, we’d like to point it towards a mode of seeing otherwise.
Asia Bazdyrieva, Alexey Orlov and Solveig Suess presented a performance lecture for The Influencers‘ 2018 programme. More information on the NNN commissioned work Geocinema: Framing Territories can be found on our website.
