Pyramid Schemes | A Collaborative Project

Thu May 02, 2013 19:00 - Thu May 02, 2013

London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

'Pyramid Schemes' is a collaborative exhibition organized by Lawrence Lek and The White Review to showcase a collection of short stories about real and imaginary buildings. Drawing inspiration from the work of Victor Hugo, Apollinaire and Jorge Luis Borges, the project invites forty-eight contemporary artists and writers to submit 100-word texts that explore architectures of their own creation.

For one night only, an immersive installation at The White Building in Hackney Wick will shape the collected texts into a panoramic cityscape. Please join us on Thursday 2nd May from 7-10pm to celebrate the spectacle of this fictional city. A limited edition of fold-out artists’ books will be produced to accompany the event.

BYOB - ‘Bring Your Own Beamer’ is a series of one-night exhibitions hosting artists and their projectors. It celebrates the moving image and explores how we interact with the virtual world. Today we define information. Tomorrow it will define us. BYOB gives us a glimpse of what that future might look like.

We invite you to transform the White Building into a collaborative work of movement, experimentation and spontaneous interaction. All you need is to bring your own projector and something to project. This is open to interpretation: AVIs, GIFs, 3D worlds, live streams, reel-to-reel films, overhead projectors, TVs, and oscilloscopes are all welcome.

To register to take part, please send your name, website, and link to the work you will be showing to: lawrence [at] lek.co

Curated by Lawrence Lek and Omar Kholeif.

BYOB was initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal in 2010. Since then over 80 events have taken place around the world.

The White Building is London’s new cultural venue focusing on innovation and creative practice at the intersection of art, technology and ecology.
