Exodus (Negev Desert, 1995)

In an unique and again technologically pioneering project, Bielicky sets out to inscribe the biblical Exodus route into the prototype of what we all have come to know as the internet. Calling it a tele-performance in 1995, Bielicky and al. - equipped with a Jeep stacked with high-end technology - set out to track the Exodus route in the Negev desert, collecting GPS data and storing it on one of the first websites as they go. That project, at the very junction of religion and narrative technology, marks a pivoting point in Bielicky's work. Technology is not haunted by specters anymore, the equilibrium reached with The Name (1990) tips in favor of technology: Bielicky traces the biblical history of Jewish culture scientifically.
