It explores how we passively consume digital information and get trapped in habitual, infinite scroll interaction with social media and other web portals.
It aims to achieve that by exaggerating the intersection of digital and analogue interaction. By materialising digital interaction and digitising physical force it makes the interaction evident, visible and obvious to the artwork participators.
The experience of wheel is designed to be engaging, responsive and easy to grasp hence people from varied backgrounds and of varied ages can participate.
Finally, this project questions the value of digital image and manifest that the only way to appreciate digital information is to break, to stop the constant steam of data and appreciate what is shown to us. Question arises, are those images worth sacrificing our priceless time and attention?

Kary, Sheila, Sandy, Michael, my beloved husband and my family. I have been in a place for six incredible years where winning meant a crust of bread and to live another day. Since the blessed day of my liberation I have asked the question, why am I here? I am no better. In my mind's eye I see those years and days and those who never lived to see the magic of a boring evening at home. On their behalf I wish to thank you for honoring their memory, and you cannot do it in any better way than when you return to your homes tonight to realize that each of you who know the joy of freedom.
