“Rights of humans in the digital age” group show. Brunswick Street Gallery. October 2015
An exhibition concerned with aliens and outer-space, alienation, the spread of virus in our contemporary milieu (both digitally and physically), migration, simulacrum, robots, retro futurism, radical transparency, and loss of data.
Progress increases the liminal abilities of movement as our contemporary world sees populations shifting and relocating while data and information moves and removes itself constantly. What is the relationship between an internet virus and a globally sweeping infective disease? Is an alien really from outer-space, or is this a body created via alienation. Does all of this data really carve out new futures? How much is a re-living, a copy, an enactment of things past.
The selection of artists in this exhibition seek out answers to these questions while positing what our future can be, while imbedded within digitised technological demands.
