Geocinema considers planetary-scale networks – cell phones, surveillance cameras, satellites, geosensors – as a vastly distributed cinematic apparatus. Their “stitching” processes are used for imperial observation, surveillance, verification, and tracking. Whether planned or accidental, they contribute to a visual culture for an uncertain future-present and yet, this “camera” is framing a form of “geocinema.” In their exhibition at Kunsthall Trondheim, Geocinema consider this vast geocinematic apparatus as generator of a new form of distributed, machine-aided intelligence. The collective traces its creations and points it towards modes of seeing otherwise.
Geocinema consists of art historian Asia Bazdyrieva and filmmaker Solveig Suess.
