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.
