Single channel video installation, 2010 (the video itself was produced in 2005)
"In Dotscape, Sutthirat Supaparinya transfigures the diary format: a mechanical buzz accompanies a non-linear series of softly pixilated tableaux. Gerhard Richter's photo-referenced paintings come to mind. Shapes morph, pulsing with potential; patterns abstract the landscape with the subtlety of chain-link fencing; dots leap or fly. Was that a bird? But there is nothing luminous or even naturalistic about this world; modernity has altered ‘normal' vision, the visual field reduced to graphic effects. "

“This work poses the question: Can advertising and capitalism buy our view of landscapes and change the environment? When the journey begins in Bangkok, you see how advertising changes the cityscape in general. And then when you focus in on the specific advertising matrix, it also changes your view out the window and the whole experience of the train ride. So how should we view this? Where is the critical shift in consciousness?
"While Jung over-sharpened and opened the image, Sutthirat Supaparinya’s Dotscape (2010) obscured vision to call our attention to what and how we see. In this clever video shot on a train in Thailand, where the windows are covered with dot-printed advertising, looking is mediated by the visual noise of marketing, which creates its own pointillist landscape."
