My work ORDER OF MAGNITUDE is part of an online exhibition titled Please don’t stand in the middle of the road waiting for me to get you on camera (exhibition info, enter exhibition). From curator Bob Bicknell-Knight:
The works presented consider how human beings are increasingly reliant on digital technologies, from navigating through offline environments utilising Google Maps to having a job as a micro-tasker, working for an online service where users pay to have a pretend girlfriend or boyfriend text them. The crafting of digital, online identities, to be monetised and utilised when traversing offline space has become increasingly prevalent due to the rise of social media sites, allowing everybody to be anybody in a world of hypercapitalism. The exhibition takes its name from a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) with a Google Maps Driver. Throughout the thread the driver details their exploits, from sticking to the speed limit to being harassed at rest stops.
The show is up through 23 July, and includes works by Aram Bartholl, Petra Cortright, Joe Hamilton, and Pilvi Takala.
