The work tries to represent space taking into account the proximity of things, the way in which the subject is lost in the network/assemblage of objects and it is transformed in turn, together with the network/assemblage it is contained in. Hence, the notion of privacy itself takes a new meaning: putting aside the privacy defined in legal terms (normative privacy), we discover the experiential, interstitial privacy, privacy defined starting rather from the well-being created by the relation with the ally-objects in our proximity – privacy as an ecology of our well being.

The Interstitial Space is part of a larger project hosted by, an online platform with works that are their own theoretical and practical framework. In this sense, The Interstitial Space is a continuation of the work Network Expression that outlines the theoretical and technical  premises of the project the non-correlationist landscape of absolute contingency described by Quentin Meillassoux in After Finitude and the creation of a language/system for knowledge representation oriented towards the object, for a automatised capturing of the ancestral expression of things offered by this landscape.


Nita Mocanu

Nita Mocanu (born 1977) is a visual artist whose works are a combination of video art, video performance, text, photography. Her works are constructed around the way in which people take action in various situations (from small gestures to large-scale actions to doing nothing), being influenced by language, the perception of the self and the way people represent to themselves the world in general, but also other factors that exceed human control/understanding.

Marius Stoica

Marius Stoica (born 1980) is aphilosophy graduate and his projects are situated between contemporary philosophy, contemporary art and information technology. In 2016 he started the project, which aims to express through a variety of artistic approaches (installation, video performance, netart) a set of philosophical ideas circumscribed to speculative realism and orbiting around the concept of etho-tecture (the invisible ways of communication, beaten and well-worn within the networks / assemblages of things, beings and entities).
