Evan Roth’s Creative Capital Project “Red Lines” Available Online
In his Creative Capital project, Red Lines, Evan Roth investigates the physicality of the web as a means to unite and reconnect with changing digital and natural landscapes. Since 2014, Roth has been documenting coastal sites where undersea internet cables emerge from the waters, and with Creative Capital funding, he shot new footage in Cape Town, New York, Hong Kong and Buenos Aires. He turned this into a browser-based artwork accessible to anyone with an internet connection, displaying moving images of meditative landscapes that are digitally streamed from servers located at the sites of their documentation.
The artist encourages viewers to set up unused screens in their work or living spaces to live with the artwork over the course of its one-year lifespan.
