Joana Moll and Marloes de Valk discuss Joana’s project 4004, commissioned in 2021. Digging into the infrastructures at the heart of today’s digital technology, they discuss the role of art in the transition to a less polluting society.
4004 creates a link between the explosion of techno-capitalism, the acceleration of climate change and resulting decline of essential ecosystems.
"I am trying to develop sets of relations between images and practices across time, across species, across technologies, and identify certain old tropes that are returning today. I would like to think that my mode of looking, which involves placing images along those deep-historical lines, is also a way of showing why photography matters".
