Masque - John Butler
Time is money and horror suggests this 3D visualisation of an Occult Transaction Space. A story of the Prime Contractors who map out the rules of engorgement. In their own words: “We are best in breed and first in line. We do it all. No returns, no refunds, no kidding.” The rules may be made public but are typically only fully known to the force that intends to use them. An homage to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Lev Manovich’s ‘database narrative’.
Born in 1959 in Dublin, John lives and works in Glasgow. His works have been shown in various contexts including television, Internet and contemporary art galleries. Recently he has exhibited in Berlin, Utrecht, Linz and Madrid. This is his first exhibition in Perth.
