Ed Florance (b.1995) creates digital “encounters”, which seem illogical yet simultaneously credible. In Over and Out (2017), a discarded computer-chair has fallen onto the marble floor of a vacant office. The details in the room, such as the subtle gleam of light that bounces off the floor, muddle the perception of what’s virtual and real. The chair is shown from varying perspectives, which generates a feeling of expectation, similar to the mystery provoked in a game of Cluedo, as the questions: “what’s happened here?” and “what’s going to happen here?” arise.
