Next Brave New World


Dates:
Wed Aug 20, 2014 12:50 - Tue Sep 16, 2014

Next Brave New World
Designing [possible] Future
Selections of projects engaged with the cultural and social impacts of technology
20/08/2014 – 16/09/2014
Arebyte gallery is happy to present ‘Next Brave New World’, an exhibition featuring a selection of projects from graduates of the Royal College of Art which engage with the cultural and social impacts of technology. The projects all inspect different aspects of possible future scenarios through the lens of speculative design, technological developments and social and political narratives.
Echoing Aldous Huxley, ‘Next Brave New World’ focusses on possible futures that sit inbetween utopians and dystopias and presents projects that describe the processes leading to these fictional worlds. The exhibition aims to observe the role of the individual as part of different agencies such as society, nature capital, happiness and culture.

The featured projects raise questions such as:
What is happiness and must we achieve it?
Must governments change to accommodate new needs and desires?
How will vanity and hedonism evolve with our use of technology?
Can we create new forms of life to enhance our experience of nature?
And how might our concepts of space and time change as we look past our own Life times and undertake to design this Next Brave New World?

Dream Home with Fabio Lattanzi Antinori and Sara Ludy at Affordable Wick


Dates:

Dream Home with Fabio Lattanzi Antinori and Sara Ludy at Affordable Wick during Hackney WickED

‘Dream Home’, a multi-faceted media installation looking at the gaps between reality and fantasy as manifested in the online and offline experience together with a critical examination of the recent housing and financial crisis. The installation features the work of two very talented artists Lattanzi Antinori and Sara Ludy, who’s work use the digital, offline and online as their main artistic tool.

The piece, ‘Olympic walk’ by Fabio Lattanzi Antinori manipulates and hacks the methods of description used by online and offline real-estate agents and services to portray different aspects of a property in order to make it appealing and attractive, thus transform and expose its poetic and lyrical nature making them absurd and fantastic.
Adding to the fantasy, the work ‘Dream House’ by Sara Ludy shows a tour of 3D rendered architectural and interior landscapes floating in space. Each shot is carefully constructed and planned resembling the very familiar home décor and architecture magazines aesthetics.
The installation is placed within the wooden cabin made by Affordable Wick as a research for alternative spaces within the city.

The cabin and the two works create a dialogue between the physicality of the space it is situated in, the texts and poems which are intended to make us dream and the house which only exists in our dreams and fantasies. This circle, which may feel endless in our pursuit of material happiness, brings us to find alternatives and settle for what we can afford rather than what we wish and therefore draws us away from the physical possibilities of the fantasy. But can the fantasy which exists online satisfy us or does it only keep the dream alive?

Profile Picture by Mark Farid


Dates:
Fri Aug 01, 2014 18:00 - Sun Aug 03, 2014

Location:
london, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Arebyte is happy to present ‘Profile Picture’, an interactive installation by the artist Mark Farid, challenging our relationship with social media and our online presence. The project looks at the commodification of our online activities by digital bodies such as Facebook and Google and the lack in our understanding of their role in in a capitalistic power orientated systems.

These two mega-corporations have transformed the world as we know it:
Facebook replaced many of our social activities from the most basic one of verbal dialogue to the more complex ones of making new connections whilst Google is practically in control of our informal education and knowledge in general, and all that is placed somewhere in the skies, far from our reach, close to their use.
The power of the digital is increasing with no slowing down in sight, but where are we standing in relation to this rapid growth? Are we to sit idly by as it continues to feed our fictional social desires, or shall we question this ever growing reality?

Farid invites us to experience this relationship with the invisibility of the digital and asks us to question the medium and the changes it brings.

Bio
GLTI.CH is a collaborative mess between Kyougn Kmi and Daniel Rourke that breaches hopeless distances with cultural and technical make-dos. Our work brings people together in glitchy karaoke fests, broken DJ mix-haps, and other kludged-together happenings. Since April 2011 we’ve exposed the course of accidents, temporal lyrical disjoints and technical out-of syncs between, among others, London/Seoul/Kumamoto with Meanwhile Space, Liverpool/London with MercyUK, Amsterdam/Chicago/London with glidottcslashh, Amsterdam/Berlin/Seoul/Manchester as part of ANDfestival, and with The White Building, Hackney Wick. We’ve made the mishmashed world of GLTI.CH through play and we hope you’ll join us.

Washing Machine Magazine is an independent, multimedia publication that showcases projects by creatives working in sound and image.

It is presented through two connected platforms: a printed publication and a website that integrates the print content through video and audio supplements.
Every featured project reflects the contemporary age in its multi-faceted reality.

Art and media are explored where artists and designers communicate concepts, re-configure ideas, collaborate and combine different elements.

Washing Machine Magazine features interviews with artists, multimedia content and examines the impact of innovative, digtal tools and new processes on creative media today.
Issue 1 showcases emerging artists’ and designers’ projects that represent basic natural elements through digital media. In some projects visuals describe sounds, in some others sounds describe physical objects.
The first issue’s title ‘White Wash’ indicates not only purity, energy and freshness but also a starting point – a blank space to interact with.
