Remain in Light―Haruki Nishijima

Curated by Field Office

Signals from the surrounding environment – transient personal information from parking lots, restaurants, city streets – are captured in a butterfly net receiver. Output data appear as beautiful clusters of sound-emitting light. Immediate and remote space are both transformed by Haruki Nishijima’s invention of an imaginary ecology.

Estranged Body and Alternate Interfaces―Kinga Araya and Stelarc

Knowledge of the body as the reversible surface of social life and self-identity is the shared concern that brings the works of Kinga Araya and Stelarc into dialogue. In both cases the artist ardently pursues this knowledge through the use of prosthetic devices that create awkward new shapes and complex new sets of gestures.

F2F: New Media Art from Finland―Heidi Tikka, Teijo Pellinen, Laura Beloff + Maex Decker, Kristian Simolin, Hanna Haaslahti, Tuomo Tammenpää, Juha Huuskonen and Marita Liulia

Curated by Marko Tandefelt in collaboration with Bryn Jayes

As the datasphere becomes increasingly dense, many fear the loss of face-to-face communication and, along with it, much of what we think of as distinctively human. The exhibition F2F: New Media Art from Finland includes nine wired, participatory installations that explore the insistence of the human within the realm of the machine and the influence of the human-machine interface on our social selves.

Pixel Plunder©―Curated by Michael Alstad and Michelle Kasprzak

Pixel Plunder© is seven web-specific projects that range from a "sanctioned" appropriation of the Tate Modern's website by Harwood from the Mongrel Collective; 0100101110101101.ORG’s Life Sharing, which allows the viewer complete entry into the artist's computer and system folder; Duchampian Digital Readymades harvested through net search engines by MTAA Collective; Joanna Briggs' Haikoo, which parallels and challenges the structure of web-based information by borrowing from and mimicking the popular search engine Yahoo; Negativland's Pastor Dick's Mailbox

Mid Air―Tegan Smith, Ken Gregory and Andrea Polli

For a moment a thing exists between two states, suspended. Lifted off the ground, it defies gravity. Placed in an arbitrarily measured space, it shifts its scale. En route between its source and its destination, it moves on airwaves or is telepresent. Mid Air is an exhibition of sculptural works that draw our attention to air as a medium of sound and vision, and as an elemental life force.

Wide―David Rokeby and Elizabeth vander Zaag

Wide is an exhibition angle that draws attention to the pervasiveness of hybrid practices and encourages their nomadic inclinations. It creates a temporary network that can be entered through any one of eighteen portal spaces. Travelling the city, encountering the situations that the exhibition comprises, the Wide audience follows a flexible circuit in which each concentrated moment rebounds back to the collecting question: What happens to the screen when its shards are everywhere?

Intimate Perceptions―Jon Baturin, Orshi Drozdik, Tibor Vamos and Hilda Kozari, Nell Tenhaaf, Jack Butler, Nina Czegledy and Eric Fong

Communication technologies and biotechnologies are the crucial tools recrafting our bodies.
– Donna Haraway

What happened in the middle of the twentieth century cannot simply be wiped off the table. It has fundamentally changed our relationship to what we can call (or want to or have to call) human.
– Gerburg Treusch-Dieter
