Sara Eliassen The Feedback Loop
Sara Eliassen’s project The Feedback Loop explores how screen culture and the moving images we surround ourselves with affect our thoughts, gazes and movements.
The artist has looked at tourist and propaganda films of the twenties and thirties, in which techniques, such as montage and morphing, were used to induce viewers to identify with nationalist ideology. She explores how such strategies have travelled through film history and continue to operate in contemporary screen culture.
The screening series forms the backdrop for Eliassen’s own public screen intervention at Oslo Central Station, where the artist feeds new video material into the flow of images and messages being exchanged between screens and humans. The Feedback Loop culminates in an exhibition at Munchmuseet on the Move – Kunsthall Oslo at Dronning Eufemias gate 34.
