Edition 1 of 5
‘Remind Me Later’ is inspired by an option that we have from the notification that we usually get from our gadget to update any operation system, program or application on it. In this work, Tromarama try to explore the anxiety to always keep up with the latest technology. Changing technology and equipment are becoming the extension of human body, influencing the development of reality. The 3D model of an androgyny human figure in this video continuously distorts and floats through the whole video. For this work, Tromarama collaborated with sound artist Riar Rizaldi and applied the frequency of the Pink Noise to the background music.
