The Departed was an interactive digital media installation in the form of a digital seance initially conceived by Sarah Selby, Tim Kindberg, and Yiota Demetriou, and later undertaken by Tim and Sarah for the tech art festival Control Shift Network in Sept 2020.
Lockdown has disembodied us from the physical. We are super-virtual phenomena, wandering cyberspace for a sense of connection. At the same time, we have listened to new birdsong, and to the silence of carless streets. Part séance, part installation, The Departed guides us through open communication between physical and digital worlds. We invite you to join us in making contact with the things that have departed and the things we lost as the world unlocked.
