Since video conferences entered my everyday life, I have found that my concept of what constitutes a room has changed. The spatiality has expanded and collapsed. It has become something much more extensive that can span across the globe. At the same time it is something smaller that fits inside a microcomponent in a laptop. The space I interpret as a room is only binary numbers as far as the computer is concerned. The analog- and digital rooms have merged into something new. I wonder what this new spatiality is and if it can be separated. Does it linger? Can an image, once uploaded, be separated from the pixels? Can a unique series of pixels become an image? Can a neural network’s concept of nature, longing, and the sublime be separated from its data and the people who created that data? Can this text be separated from the AI that corrected its grammar? I find this hybridity hard to grasp, like quantum physics. I think of Schrödinger’s cat, the cat that is dead and alive simultaneously, and wonder, is it still a cat?

Sample all nature below,
A sample image is to the right.

I’m not a robot.
