This year Manchester celebrates its position as European City of Science 2016. To mark this occasion, CFCCA’s programme will explore the boundaries between art and science through the lens of Chinese contemporary art. Opening this programme is Remnants of an Electronic Past, a solo exhibition from Shanghai based new media artist 'aaajiao'.
Trained as a computer programmer, aaajiao works extensively with new technologies through his work (even his artist name comes from the handle of his online presence).
Through reproduction of sculptural elements to represent a ‘digital graveyard’, aaajiao uses his own unique approach to contemporary technology to contemplate what happens to obsolete versions of software as technology moves forward asking the question, where does software go to die?
