Iterations #2: I don’t know where this is going

Iterations #2: I don’t know where this is going
A collective installation by Constant & esc

Contrary to on-line services such as Open Street Map or Google Maps, the playful spatial earth itinerary simulator proposed in this installation points at the stormy weathers, the obstacles, the troubles and uncertainties you might encounter on a journey. Bodies and objects move through the space of I don’t know where this is going. They curve, bend, avoid, cut across, crossing lines of separation and connecting the dots from point of departure to destination.

Departing, taking off, leaving, going, fleeing, escaping … where from and where to? The war in Syria, its disastrous effects on people’s lives and the streams of refugees it created and still creates destabilises the concept/idea of travel. When fleeing home seems unavoidable, it doesn’t mean your destination is immediately clear. Are you welcome? For thousands of people the question where this is all leading to is a crucial one.

I don’t know where this is going
is part of Iterations, a project investigating the future of collaborative artistic practices in a technologically networked context, initiated by Constant and esc medien labor (Graz, Austria).
