We’re showing at FILE Electronic Language International Festival
SAO PAULO 2018 – The body is the message

FILE Electronic Language International Festival’s theme for FILE SÃO PAULO 2018 is “The Body is the Message“. Despite the apparent allusion to the world of the cyborg in the title, it refers to a different connection between technology and the body – to the aesthetic and artistic connection that is formed, which operates separately from the communicative flow of information and data – the appreciation of a work of art and of the way in which it is made.
For some time, artists have appropriated for their own use technologies from the field of medicine – in particular those devices that record the behavior of the internal organs of the human body – its heartbeats, brain waves, and breaths.

Ruined

Until 29th April 2018
coffeeismycupoftea space, London

G/M will be showing prints from their Ruined project at coffeeismycupoftea. In the ‘Ruined’ series of images the artists used a network conditioning tool to throttle bandwidth to the Apple Maps app creating a series of images showing low-resolution models downloaded before the final high resolution versions are displayed. The low polygon models with softened shapes and smeary, muddy textures speak to the idea of unmaking, the high tech creating a kind of ruin. The mapping software though up to the minute, cannot keep pace with the breakneck changes occurring in the physical world — at some of the map sites a hole in the ground is now occupied by a building in real life and vice versa. The digital echoes an imperfect ideal.

THIS IS WHERE WE CAME IN

Richard Ducker + Gibson / Martelli
Angus Hughes Gallery
Private View 20th April 6-9pm
Exhibition 21st April – 13th May

An indeterminate zone, frozen, governed by history’s Law where escape requires of us to float, as if just above the ground. It is a location devoid of humanity, only dancing avatars: an analogue stage choreographed in the digital. Stress levels exceeded as vectors take opposite directions…

STRANGELANDS

Exhibition continues to 4 Oct
Collyer Bristow Gallery, London

These are extraordinary times.

Of unanchored worlds, ruptured spaces 
Fabricated and dislocated places 
Alternative languages, signs and systems 
Confusions of reality and fictions.
Here are the dispossessed and the reinvented 
The unfathomable, the inexplicable
The vampyres, visitors and hoodlums.

These are StrangeLands.

Virtual Artists-in-Residence

October 2016
Gazell.io

We are pleased to announce that we are artists-in-residence at www.gazell.io for October.

During the artistic process a plethora of images are produced -often unused in the finished product and thus never reaching the public domain. These experimental images are part of the technical exploration process, provoking new pathways to visualisations – by-products of research, they can signify significant leaps of invention and potential thinking.
