Vala is a video installation, depicting the titular protagonist guiding and addressing the viewer directly.
In her role as a hybrid digital assistant, Vala’s voice shifts between a musical, confessional and advisory expression, mimicking the flow of ever changing online content. The multitude of her voices is accompanied by transformations of her visual image. Through sonic and visual means, the installation raises questions about the disembodied and defragmented notions of identity within the online realm.
The project was made in collaboration with Jesse Perlstein (Sontag Shogun).
Organisation: Kino Šiška. The project is supported by Dutch fund Mondriaan Fonds.
