All at once

Superposition imagines a world, disconnected and simultaneously existing in many places and states at all times. Drawing from a library of recorded sounds and footage recorded pre-pandemic to the current day, it superimposes chat boxes recorded from live streams onto footage of happenings in the world. What does it mean to participate in a world that spends a lot of time online where narratives are distorted and algorithmic? As we steer ourselves to a more connected life online, do we also become more and more detached in real life?
