MOMO Festival 2022

Oana Clitan


In the video installation Pixels of lost time and space, the past and a possible future of Rotterdam intertwine. Using archive footage, multidisciplinary designer Oana Clitan immerses you in a dystopian sci-fi version of the city. Through experiments with image manipulation she tries to evoke a feeling of discomfort and a certain timelessness. Are the images real or not, are we seeing the past, present or future, and are we looking at something made by a human or by an algorithm?
