THE ABSENCE OF TELEPRESENCE
The Absence of Telepresence is a personal observation and reflection on the gradual fusion of telephone, address book, camera and computer into one gadget. Hybrid documentary, feature and research film about communication technologies, on which we had become so hardly dependant as individuals and as a society. Cinematographic mixture consists of essay narratives and images inspired by artists whose works are closely connected to communication protocols ( Buster Keaton, Sophie Call, Nam June Paik ) and director's photo serials of people with smartphones shot in Tokyo in 1997 and Seoul in 2017. Technological and artistic concepts of telephone in recent history have been performed and presented simultaneously with nostalgia, futurism and humour.
