_Speculative Atlas is an unfolded and moving collection of images. This work deals with how images are collected and placed in digital space. It makes the possibility of the pseudo-archive and realizes intangible proximity and remoteness between virtual and physical materialities. The work reflects the ways of collection, display and aesthetic appreciation of images on the Cabinet of Curiosities that natural and artificial objects are displayed together with the aspiration about new experience and knowledge, and the substitute for imaginary experiences. Images in that form are found but reframed, realistic but fabricated, and public but private.
