SuperSurfaces begins with a review of surfaces as seductive materials, mobile images, information/data generators, and message carriers in the present. It examines the elusive transitions between variously sensed and printed surfaces. It also embraces the ambivalent feelings we have between the “imminent demise” of the printed matter and its new-old re-emergence we experience on a daily basis.
SuperSurfaces aims to investigate the properties of contemporary surfaces such as ephemerality, fluidity, and blurriness and to demonstrate how we can project something above the surfaces into the present-future or future-present. SuperSurfaces provides a time to create something more than instagrammable surfaces transcending zoomed-in, high-saturated, and fragmented art and design practices and becomes a place where we rethink and imagine “SuperSurfaces” with freedom.
