〈Digital Trypanosomiasis〉

Digital Trypanosomiasis

Trypanosomiasis is a disease caused by a protist pathogen called trypanosoma, which causes a person to die in sleep. This piece, titled Digital Trypanosomiasis, is an archival + narrative digital work based on humanistic research into sleeping sickness. In a digital world where everything works on a graphical surface, it starts from the surface of a moving glass (moving screen), similar to trypanosoma, which causes sleeping sickness, and reflects on the organism, the surface, sleep, and death in a digital environment.
