It is a loose story about a travel with its visual itinerary collected on tumblr. The experience comes filtered though different devices, a limbo of being online/offline where physical and metaphorical mobility leads to eventual emancipation and embrace of the sensual. It strongly refers to Internet aesthetics with its structure based on tumblr and other social media entities and would bring online user experience into a form of a photobook. Transposing the digital into gallery space involves such strategies as letting a specific algorithm decide about the chronology of a photo stream or transposing digitallity into mobility of a source of projection. It would bring the user experience as a time based animation of still and moving images as a constant stream/scroll projected onto spaces as walls/floors, corners, slits and fissures in the gallery space to enhance the experience of the negative. in case of Internet-presented photography, as opposed to analogue medium, a negative needs redefinition. Rather a denial of an image as a possible effect of its time-based materialisation, such as long download, code error, power collapse and other such. A slit in a gallery space would interrupt the projection and refer to user experience. 

*Random selection is an immersive project floating amongst mediums such as photography, video, performance and Internet-based art. Shifting is a natural state of human perception, transformed through personal devices and numerous Internet platforms creating multiply versions and codes of reality, enhancing its presence. It forms an interrupted set of overlapping narratives with its default chronologies.
