Set at the Internet Archive, one of the world’s largest digital libraries, ‘Across Lips’ sets out in search of an image capable of, if not representing, at least interpreting the current complexity of total globalization and digital revolution. The overpowering presence of storage, organization, and information exchange systems in people’s social and subjective lives finds a metaphor in jazz improvisation.
