One of the deepest impacts of digital culture on our self-reception is the revealing our own artificiality. Virtuality as a simulation of our “reality” discovers and creates social necessities and human needs by establishing new categories of contact with us and with others as well as new categories of acceptance and recognition of otherness – irrespective of whether resulting phenomena are constructive or destructive.
The text for play me back and forth was written by the Berlin based author Michael Ebmeyer and the piece was composed for Decoder ensemble.
