Strange days is a video art installation that incorporates a breathing human body and custom original software code (c++) to talk about the rebirth of the ‘new human’.

In Strange Days the body and the space merge into one network. The body becomes a medium, a portal that receives and transmits information. The terminal-body can now connect and disconnect with other interfaces over the bit-sphere. It’s an interwoven system in which “the knee bone is connected to the I-bahn”.

“Shor makes further use in the architectural linear language. This time she projects it on the body of a woman, creating a fragment of the limitless living code. In the encounter between the human female body and the technological language of the line, Shor examines the line between man and machine. Is the body ‘trapped’ in the web? Or has it been connected into it for so long that they are now one? And perhaps now it attempts to encrypt itself in order to maintain its privacy?
