Dalena Tran | Incomplete

Dalena Tran

From the creator:

The year is 2021. The future has already happened.

This may be a reverie of our increasingly virtualized world that is submerged into a directional flow of information and disparate impressions that takes shape as a slow-burning anxiety; a rupture in linear time.

Composed of a single take, “Incomplete” invites us to traverse an endless choreography of bodies in perpetual free-fall and updating images that reflect a world in constant change.

This work is an ode to what artist and media theorist Hito Steyerl coins the "poor image." The image which is collected, copied, and processed to the point of disorientation and anonymity. The image which is not one but consists of many while presenting a different perception of coherency.
