Drinking Bird Seasons, 2015 is a new single-channel video work by Tabor Robak. It displays an abstract landscape of colours and patterns suggestive of a smart phone’s lock screen. The continuous stream of Computer Generated Imagery animation is overlaid with an electronic phone clock showing the passing of days in compliance with the Gregorian calendar. It is juxtaposed with fictional holidays and constant live news updates. This internet-enabled animation serves as a commentary on the intrusiveness of digital information and the reliance on technical devices.
