Join us for a viewing of the first screening of Serf Club, a new project by Jasmijn Visser and PWR Studio, which will evolve through a series of viewings and exhibitions. Serf Club will be on temporary display on 13 December in the gallery at Delfina Foundation.
Serf Club is an infinite film constructed from global live streams. A drama playing out in real life and in real time. The algorithmic director, influenced by intuitive, geographical, relational factors, modulates an audio-visual signal to make meaning appear and disappear. Shot reverse shot. Close-up on tangled plotlines. Build suspense and tear it down. Cut to cables snaking across borders. Cue music.
