Ornella Fieres’s work explores the hidden aspects of digital technologies. For her investigations she develops photography, video and sound techniques that forcefully merge analog and digital material, as well as different moments in time. Fieres works with photographs and documentary film material from the turn of the 20th century — a time that was characterized by a fascination of occultism in combination with technology — and processes the found footage with seemingly alchemistic methods. Fieres uses self-built apparatuses, autonomous algorithms, tweaked software or artificial intelligence to create singular moments that carry lingering traces of passed instants.
