Video piece commissioned by the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK)

HD video 8 min,
looping in the museum cinema from March 16 – September 9 2018.

Enter takes place in a fictional future where the museum collections have been uploaded and lead their own digital lives online. The collection’s figurative paintings have merged, forming a three-dimensional digital architecture inhabited by a group of conscious digital entities – among them a moth that flew into the US military’s Mark II computer in 1947 and since became known as ‘the original computer bug’.

Music: Sonja LaBianca (saxofon)

3D animation of paintings: Amalie Smith
