Being Social is the opening exhibition at Furtherfield Gallery in
Finsbury Park in North London. Furtherfield has established an
international reputation as London's first gallery for networked media
art since 2004. With this exciting move to a more public space
Furtherfield invites artists and techies - amateurs, professionals,
celebrated stars and private enthusiasts - to engage with local and
global, everyday and epic themes in a process of imaginative exchange.
This exhibition brings together artworks by emerging and internationally
acclaimed artists: Annie Abrahams, Karen Blissett, Ele Carpenter, Emilie
Giles, moddr_ , Liz Sterry and Thomson and Craighead.
Since the mid-90s computers have changed our way of being together.
First the Internet then mobile networks have grown as cultural spaces
for interaction - wild and banal, bureaucratic and controlling -
producing new ways of 'being social'. Visitors are invited to view art
installations, software art, networked performances and to get involved
with creative activities to explore how our lives - personal and
political - are being shaped by digital technologies.
