"Piercing the Curtain" features collaborative works produced by Bruno Aeberli and Rhonda Holberton. The works evolved over a 4 month period of remote correspondence between the two artists. The conversations began the way many do in the post-COVID environment, over Zoom and amid the Summer 2021 fires in San Francisco and the Flooding in Europe. Within these specific conditions a loci began to emerge; the material manifestations of digital signals; with special focus on phenomenology of climate change, infrastructural entanglement, and the tension between the perceptions of a seamlessly networked globalized planet, and the stark differences of the human experiences across borders of all kinds.
