Connected, 2016 Is a booklet that explores the self as a natural machine in a post-futurist cultural landscape, this publication juxtaposes the human body (and the machines it utilizes) with an unusual natural environment. Bringing to the forefront questions about nature, technology, and concepts of human connection.
The publication encourages the reader to wear the rubber gloves enclosed in its packaging to bring a performative layer to the experience. The booklet features imagery taken on a mobile phone accompanied by text memos of the artist’s thoughts while exploring the mentioned natural landscape. This type of visual narrative is distinctive to Ped.Moreira’s technique, being nuanced by the aesthetical iconography of video game culture, and surrealist concepts of alternate realities.
