SEA Foundation presents a group show where artists explore the growing technology and it’s effect on society. Participating artists are Janet Chan (AU), Simon Denny (NZ), Jonas Lund (SE), SangJun Yoo (KR), Junsheng Zhou (CN) and Damon Zucconi (USA).
The exhibition sheds light on the continuous transformation our society is undergoing in terms of technology and data. The abundance of new developments is unstoppable. It’s not the question anymore ‘if’ we participate, but rather how. Whether it’s the rise of social media and the sharing economy, or working from a cloud environment with a smart device. All aspects of live are becoming increasingly connected, but at what price? Each development poses new questions, that force us to reproach existing moral and legal views.
These advancements have their effect on art-making. More and more artists are feeding off the frictions and new conditions that these new developments create. In the group show ‘The Cloud in Rapids’, five artists of both emerging and established, share their approach and view on ‘big data’.
