Students Adam Cable, Sullivan Gardner, and Tim Hodge - 404: IRL Not Found Exhibition

OPENING: June 3, 5–7pm
Exhibition runs June 3–29, 2016

Drawing on individual yet interconnected process-driven techniques by Adam Cable, Sullivan Gardner, and Tim Hodge, this project considers images within the digital living/workspace and how they can integrate into a single yet faceted viewpoint based on viewer proximity.

Gardner presents a single image, incorporating physical engagements with commercial imagery in the cityscape and digital compositing. He further manipulates the image to illustrate the inherent remixability and always-mediated state of the modern image as it relates to the environment in which it is disseminated. Hodge uses stills from a composite video of advertisements and abstracted pornography, broken up into thirty frames a second, offering an accumulative view of common images that begin to break down due to the complexity of information contained. Cable uses sequential associations in finding and collecting strings of images, considering how information is not only contextual but also relational. Each appropriated image comes from a search keyword based on viewing the previous image, exemplifying connections within search engines and subjective experiences. 

The screen affects not only how we see, but how we operate, negotiate, output, understand, and navigate our daily lives. We want to make these relationships plain and encourage viewers to consider the implications of digital processes on how they perceive the world.
