FORECASTING
by Giuseppe Chico & Barbara Matijević|1er stratagème (France)

Forecasting is based on a collection of amateur videos from the Internet's largest video-sharing website: YouTube. Barbara Matijević delves into this virtual repository of videos, ranging from the banality of everyday situations to obsessive fetish behaviors. The videos act as a trigger to examine how and what the world chooses to record as its history and culture, through this popular tool of self-narration.

Moving with a laptop on stage, Barbara Matijević shapes her body as a seamless extension of the two-dimensional world of videos. The result is a hybrid experience of reality and virtuality, an intriguing and humorous dialogue that transcends time and space.

Forecasting invites you to consider the ways in which technology has affected our senses, our relation to objects and movement, and our understanding of presence.
