Tables act as a discursive space for objects: inserted between floor and ceiling, both plane and cosmos. Screens have a similar function for digital objects. Within the physical and digital space of ‘working table II’, a series of optical lenses, prisms and antique paperweights are arranged. These objects refract the fluctuating light from the moving image beneath, which shows underwater footage of headless bodies floating and folding in on themselves at sea in the current of information.
