Making Our Digital Culture Visible and Material
Lighthouse is delighted to be presenting an exhibition by one of Europe’s leading digital practitioners, Timo Arnall. Together with a network of collaborators, he reveals the invisible infrastructures that make up our technological world.
The Immaterials project sets out to expose the materials, mechanisms, and infrastructures which enable contemporary digital culture. By making these things visible through photographic, animated and film techniques they enable us to see and develop understandings about the invisible pervasive technologies in our cities, our daily experiences, and our lives.
The exhibition brings together some of the most significant works in the Immaterials body of research. It features key works such as Immaterials: Light Painting WiFi (2011) which explores the invisible terrain of Wifi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs, and Robot Readable World (2012), a film which uses found-footage from computer vision research to explore how machines are making sense of the world. Earlier and seldom seen works, which show the genesis of this line of enquiry, such as Experiments in Field Drawing (2008), will be presented alongside the premiere of new works, which visualise the presence of networks in our daily lives in surprising and novel ways.
