Inevitably I have been working with the form of the progress bar, and thinking about the opportunities they present. As the internet and computer processors speed up, the progress bar will die. It’ll become as antiquated as the typewriter ribbon.

There’s a symmetry to my practice at the moment, on the one hand I am working with massive image series and all the downloading/processing that they demand, and on the other I am sitting looking at these bars/numbers/pinwheels for ages and thinking about this affective state of waiting. There’s a massive amount of info on one side and a strange sense of stasis on the other.
