|Alexander Mouton: "My interests lie in the poetic and narrative possibilities of sequencing images, whether in net art, artists' books, or multimedia. As an artist, I explore the potential that new technology has for bringing visual and sound arts together for interactive and immersive works both online and in physical spaces. Much of my work explores the territory between linear and non-linear narrative and it often alludes to the unknown, whether investigating individual psychology, relations between people, or social issues."

Alexander Mouton: "Wires examines the subversive means by which email solicitors use narrative to undermine spam filters. Because of the way in which the filters analyze sentence structures, a narrative excerpt can be randomly added to a commercial email, which will in turn automatically be regarded by the filter as a non-soliciting message and be allowed to pass through. Wires’s photographs of cable lines from Europe, the Middle East, and the United States act as a metaphor for our communications-saturated landscape. The diverse emails superimposed over the photographs interrupt the landscapes to form a totally nonsensical narrative threading throughout the work.”
Images were taken in and around: Amman, Jordan; Berlin, Germany; Bloomington, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; Columbus, Ohio; Damascus, Syria; Huntington, West Virginia; Rostock, Germany; and San Francisco, California.
