The practice of serializing a novel is older than the most well-known Victorian-era serial, Oliver Twist. Yet, why is the phenomenon re-emerging in 2022? When people today can access most media at all times, why choose to engage in a 125-year-old novel at a slow, serialized pace? Serialized literature or serialized content has always been present in societal media.
A visual information society, always susceptible to the mistrust of mediation, always fraught with anxiety about photography and the news, with their privileged relationship to the real, always worrying about the “truth”––these are observations already metabolized, and the exhibit does not take them in new directions, nor does it find new forms for its expressions.
The luck of a red-eye makes you wonder if it is a delusion you’re experiencing from a lack of sleep, or if this is that “God” that they speak of, entertaining himself at the expense of your confusion and misery.
