XYZ is a video guide that teaches you how to create a model of a white flag in a 3D design programme but gradually deviates from the outlined task into a self-referential, self-questioning speech. The human voice is exposed as an interface that resonates in an unsuccessful search for a response. Among other things, it raises questions about contemporary data visualisation, the digital turn that has led to the codification of our lives, standard forms of communication in the information age, sense of belonging and possibilities of orientation within the new coordinates of the territory opened up by the digital technologies.
Miloš Trakilović is a Bosnian-Dutch artist. He holds a MFA from the University of Arts in Berlin where he graduated in the Experimental Film and New Media Art department. His practice revolves around the politics of perceptibility exploring issues of dissolution; fragmentation and memory. His topical interest is the role of vision in the construction of meaning and production of power following the digital turnover. His work is most often situated within digital media in the form of moving image, installation, lectures and writings. In addition to his work as an artist, he is active as educator and consultant in the artfield and is a member of advisory committees in The Netherlands and abroad.
