XYZ problematizes the present-day visualization of data. The digital turnover brought about an increased codification of our everyday life which is not necessarily representational. In this work the human voice gets singled out as the interface that echoes in vain search for responsiveness. The video is structured as an online tutorial that gradually turns into self-talk. It questions standard modes of communication in an information age.
