Deep Water Web is a poetic essayistic meditation around phenomena straddling contemporary and historical geopolitical contexts of the UK and Australia; a continuous hyperlandscape, an environment composed from local manifestations of global ecologies, between points in the northern and southern hemispheres in the UK and Australia, online and in the physical space of Furtherfield Gallery.
Networking the Unseen is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the intersection of indigenous cultures and zeitgeist digital practices in art, bringing together concepts and experiences of remoteness and marginalised cultures, with art-making in contemporary society.
Featuring Gretta Louw, Lily Hibberd, Brook Andrew, Curtis Taylor, Jenny Fraser, Sharon Nampijinpa Anderson and the Warnayaka Art Centre.
This is the fourth and final part of the Digital Futures: Money No Object series of events. The session will be led by Brett Scott author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money, followed by an evening public showcase. It will be a currency prototyping brainstorm, where we will explore whether a currency or alternative exchange system might be developed for and by a distributed network of artists to support and promote experimental, open and free practices.
A panel – chaired by Ruth Catlow and joined by Steve Fletcher and Lindsay Taylor – that discusses an electrifying cluster of controversies: the subversive intentions and emancipatory motivations of many media artists; the needs and concerns of public art collectors and conservators; the opportunities for private collectors and the interests of high art market speculation.
An open mapping session, following on from the Digital Futures: Money No Object event that was held in October, that will look at alternative currencies and value systems and will act as an evaluation and gathering session before a larger prototyping event that will follow in January 2015.
Webizens join us to draw, make and play games for the Web We Want: to defend freedom of access and a life free from surveillance and data exploitation; to distribute knowledge and resources for the benefit of millions of people and their enduring communities.
