‘Dust Image Fragments Ghosts’ is an artistic exploration of my view of heterotopia from a writer’s perspective, the dimension of the fragmental, and the space in between the text and the reader. The starting point are 3D micrographs of dust samples from mobile and immobile cultural artefacts, which were part of a research project which investigated the aesthetic potential of dust and its information content from the perspective of the conservation and restoration. Dust has the power to make visible the absent, to show what must have been there. Fragments as a literary form show what might be there, in between or around. ‘Dust Image Fragments Ghosts’ follows the traces of seemingly empty space. It is a reflexive literary expedition into the landscapes of dust, a ghostly universe between micro and macro, reader and writer, image and imagination.

More about this publication?
  • Ubiquity is an international peer reviewed journal for creative and transdisciplinary practitioners interested in technologies, practices and behaviours that have the potential to radically transform human perspectives on the world. "Ubiquity", the ability to be everywhere at the same time, a potential historically attributed to the occult is now a common feature of the average mobile phone. The title refers explicitly to the advent of ubiquitous computing that has been hastened through the consumption of networked digital devices. The journal anticipates the consequences for design and research in a culture where everyone and everything is connected, and will offer a context for visual artists, designers, scientists and writers to consider how Ubiquity is transforming our relationship with the world.
