The initial idea was to make a “bouquet of spring flowers,” and to “broadcast” this in spring (We still have 18 more days of spring!). The term broadcast (for broadcast distribution, like the internet) is originally a farming term for the broad casting of seeds. Distributing seeds over a broad area, throwing them with your hand. The internet here not only broadcasts over a large space, but also time (being able to store data that can be accessed in the future – like a seed?). Playing with these etymologies and metaphors, this exhibition is like a handful of seeds sent out somewhere. They may remain dormant, or with the right conditions, they can materialize into real space. And this is also about time – playing with the natural temporalities of the seasons (the movement of the sun and the Earth), with the simultaneity and synchronous aspects of high speed communication (something that seems to be able to exist beyond time and space).
