Performed by Barbara Matijević
Forecasting is based on a collection of amateur videos from the biggest video sharing and watching website: YouTube.
Alone on stage, Barbara Matijević manipulates a laptop that broadcasts videos posted by anonymous users (there are no television and/or cinematographic clips) that meet the 1:1 scale criteria.
The performance establishes a space-time suspended between two parallel systems of perception: that of physical reality and that of the screen. Moving on stage with a laptop, Barbara Matijević models her body as an extension without continuity with the two-dimensional world of video images.
Forecasting gives an overview of the increasing role that digital tools have in the narration of Self and the collective construction of the Imaginary.
