The exhibition brings together works that record precise moments in time. Shown alongside the artworks are historical artifacts that could be seen as the raw data that the artists collectively share an interest in. Meticulously collating, analysing and visualising data are recurring themes and the singular objects, video and sound works are the result of the combined energy of a wealth of individual units of information.

The selected works deal with human endeavour and a desire to chart a world that often defines a comprehensible scale. Whilst firmly rooted within an analytical framework, tender moments and a delicate splendor inevitably surface from the rigor of systems and theory.

A text by Diane Sims will accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition is curated by Lizzie Hughes
