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.
