About

It’s 2024, and it has now been just over 18 years since the first video was uploaded onto YouTube in April 23, 2005. Embarking on an immersive journey through the exhibition, Children of the Digital Revolution: A Multidimensional Odyssey, invites visitors to witness a coming-of-age of perception since the dawn of YouTube. The gallery unfolds as a narrative tapestry, intertwining object displays, interactive analogue installations, and audio-visual media. This curated experience mirrors the collective metamorphosis of society, a shared voyage of growing up and becoming digital.

The exhibition serves as a mirror reflecting personal histories, challenging the acts of seeing through fragmented moments of documented lives. From clunky cameras to the sleek mobile phone screens of today, the displays trace the contours of a digital modernism that has woven itself into the fabric of our lives. Through interactive exhibits, visitors engage with relics of the past, creating a dialogue between analogue nostalgia and the relentless march of progress. A selection of the artist’s work mapping time and space in different media, prompts contemplation on our shared journey, inviting introspection into the intersections of personal narratives and technological evolution.
