Creators: Doherty, Shauna
Abstract:

SYS.TE/M FAIL.U+RE: Revelations of the Interface is an exhibition of glitch video works that deconstruct the digital objects that have become fully integrated into the contemporary technological landscape. In this curated show through the mobilization of technological error artists, Nick Briz (Chicago), Jennifer Chan (New York), Adrienne Crossman (Toronto) and Ezra Hanson-White (Seattle) individually respond to the premise that to examine the effects of the technology that surrounds we must first render it visible. The featured works reflect on the conditions of contemporary digital culture and the pervasive presence of digital interfaces. By purposefully revealing the constitutional elements of digital information, glitch art acts as a resistive form that combats the transparency of digital media and the passive engagement it enables.

Date: April 2014
