Russia Watch on Andrey Bartenev

Andrey Bartenev ’s installation Connection Lost is a glass tunnel, with fifty LED spheres with the words Connection Lost circling in their orbit. A heart inside each sphere symbolizes the potential frustration in the world of virtual connections. At the same time, the very message about lost connections, continues to multiply and reproduces itself with LED letters and mirrors. On the surface, the stage is captivating. With the lights and music mixed together, there is a sense of false happiness. It is a metaphor for the simulative communities that exist to give to give continued hope to a chance of an encounter.
