Megan Dieudonné & Andrea Rüthel
A curious user drags all the files and folders into the trash and now has a clear view of the landscapes on her desktop. Using pre-installed tools, she speculates on the design, origin and intention of the depicted perspectives and looks for alternatives. An alignment is created between digital and physical space that challenges what is not made visible on the screen.
