Where Where There There Where

Zoe Beloff and the Wooster Group
1998, CD-ROM

This interactive CD-ROM project was inspired by the Wooster Group's play House/Lights, which is itself related to Gertrude Stein's play Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights. Stein's work is the starting point for Beloff's playful philosophical investigation of how theories of perception, logic and language developed in relation to technology, from 19th-century industrial mechanics to 20th-century computer architecture. Using QuickTime Virtual Reality Panoramas and QuickTime movies, Beloff envisions a visual and formal equivalent in digital media to Stein's radical restructuring of language.
