This set of short films consists of video works from the 19th Media Art Biennale WRO 2021 REVERSO programme. WRO is a major forum for new media art in Poland and one of the leading international art events in Central Europe. The programme connects the past and future of human habitats in relation to the visible and invisible conflicts that arise between emotionally charged habitats, urban structures and the global ambience. Each work explores, to a certain extent, spaces within buildings, cities or even whole islands or natural environments and invites the viewers to look reverso – to look beyond the obvious. The hidden or unseen details that underly memories and emotions are traces of interactions between the human and nonhuman, which take place in urban and habitable spaces. The remaining afterimages are invisible to the naked eye.
