Time Being: Being Time, Leipzig

All the people who have ever lived, and will ever live will be in Time Being: Being Time

What do we know about time? How do our perceptions of time shape our thoughts and experiences? How can visual art help in unpicking these questions? This exhibition brings together several artists who, working across a variety of media, all bring some new understanding to the nature of time and our perception of it.

We Dream in Database

We Dream in Database (2010)
Rhizome Curated Exhibition by Will Felker

‘We Dream in Database’ is ordered under the aegis of Lev Manovich’s opinion (as outlined in his text, “Database as Symbolic Form”) that databases present what would ordinarily be imagined. The works contain many subjects, representative gestures — mediated through the artists’ visions, accessible to the public by means of the database. If databases are understood as a constant, these works comment on the empirically shared perceptions of (and experiences with) space, across cultures and locations, and reflect on individual experience. I feature these works use of ‘traditional’ database (an archive), but also how the database is displaced to draw out expressive effects.
