In June 2013, Science Friction hosted an “anarcheological” performance featuring two major scandinavian figureheads of the “Anarchival” crusade – Bitbureauet (DK) and Piratbyrån (SE) – to originate frictions in our Art & Technology gallery in Nørrebro.

Vernissage 27th june 2013 / Kulturlagret K1 (Göteborg)
Backaplan, Backavägen 6.
Dataslöjd Summer Show is an exhibition with new works from Raquel Meyers, Geraldine Juárez and Goto80. It weaves together crafts (slöjd) and computers and plays with the logic of the market. It is the first exhibition from the collective Dataslöjd, active at Kulturlagret.
“This is what computer culture really looks like. A collection of photos that show the messy reality behind the shiny online facade. Where we make our living and spend our free time. And try to be creative. Or maybe even worse.”
May 24th-July 13th 2013 / GLITCH (Dublin)
Curated by Nora O Murchú.
How do we give value to immaterial goods? How do we buy and sell digital images? What is the relationship between economics and digital aesthetics? How can curators and artists create new platforms and models for the creation of economic exchange? The exhibition is composed of two parts – a gallery-sited virtual show, and the online production and distribution of materially-realised limited-edition goods.
Dansa in (C64 executable)
A story with pirates, sloths and sex told completely in text graphics. A blocky and brutal visual aesthetic synchronized with explosives, drunken funk and computer screams. All made in 44 kilobytes, to be executed by a Commodore 64 and its colourful ASCII-alternative called PETSCII. Visuals by Raquel Meyers, audio by Goto80 and coding by Johan Kotlinski.
13 April 2013 / Art Hack Day / Larger than life / Loggen över ditt liv @ Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm.
Datagården is most likely the first installation in the world to use a custom teletext signal. It features video input, video feedback and Twitter-feeds along with custom-made graphics/text/software and C64-music.
Me and Goto80 (with the big support of Peter Kwan) are planning to do Teletext installation for people who have passed on. A sacred place for them to be celebrated, in text-mode, way above The Cloud. Possan join to the team!!!
Curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer
In the 1913 Armory Show, the Association of American Painters and Sculptors endeavored to showcase the “New Spirit” of modern art. On its 100th anniversary, we will celebrate the Cubist paintings and sculptures in its galleries with an exhibition curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer featuring 27 contemporary artists at Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand St, NYC). Their artworks explore changes in perception precipitated by our digital age, and closely parallel the cubist vernacular of fragmentation, non-linearity, simultaneity, and decenteredness. Our exhibition poses the question: What is the legacy of Cubism in the hundred years since the Armory Show’s radical display of modern European and American art, and especially, how has this become relevant again in our digital age?
