The room of desires

The images used in the commissioned installation by Lyudmila Kalinichenko were taken from the “maps of desires” spread on the Internet by people from all over the world. Through this projection of personal dreams, wishes, and aspirations, the sacred is embedded into technology, as real-world superstitions and desires are transferred into
digital space. The installation employs the pictures as an accumulation of a “collective consciousness”; this ritual of materialization, where people collect images of what they want, is transformed into a space of universal desires.
