Along with water, land and air contamination,
WE SHOULD CONSIDER ONLINE POLLUTION
Today we live under information overload permanently, and instead of free circulation, information settles down and accumulates as gigabytes on servers.
Messes of broken virtual machines, empty online production farms, piles of code and shells: there are zones of desolation in the virtual space.
We recognize a new landscape of encumbrance and alienation through our screens. In the burdens of useless, the possibility of productive interaction with this or that element, event, fact, interpretation is not simply thrown into question, but can be articulated less and less.
The Internet turns into a dump of uselessness, inapplicability, excess, although before it had the potential to improve communication, liberate knowledge and provide decentralization.
DERIVETV IS A WAY TO GET RID OF STORING ART AND INFORMATION TO GAIN THE INTEGRITY OF MEMORY
What we produce is a moment of time, endowed with its uniqueness. You can remember it, or you can forget it — nothing will be changed in a result.
Our archives, which cannot be abandoned, are the only way of returning to a card catalogue, which keeps mentions, but never stores objects and situations, because the reproduction of objects and situations does not mean their confirmation in reality.
Maybe reproduction is just a trap.
WE AIM TO PRODUCE DATA THAT CANNOT BE REPEATED
And therefore the data that corresponds to itself at the moment when it is revealed to the world.
Now it is possible to return only to the mention and recollection of the unique moment of time, which was once, and which is always, but which cannot be replaced by the endless reproduction on the screens.
From the unique moment of time, there are only traces that line out the map of the one, which cannot be reproduced, and therefore of the one which is always can be possible again.
