The show was a result of one year PhD exchange between University of Arts in Poznan in Poland and Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) in London, during which Magdalena Zoledz was exploring the idea of the experience of a singular images in postphotographic age.
“When the Internet Was Slow” is a part of Zoledz’s ongoing research started in 2017, experimenting with the idea of evolution of digital images in the human world. While investigating the subject of the digital world and having to deal with many pejorative terms like: low resolution, lack of aura or statements like: being just a copy, orphaned images, visual overflow or even image pollution, made her feel sorry for the digital images. Referring to the popular meditation guides available online, artist created an imaginary monologue in which the digital image tries to free itself from everyday worries, as well as those associated with its physicality.
