Save Event: Stolen Artworks Exhibited In A Hacker Chatroom

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Have you ever wondered how hackers see the internet? How do they steal stuff, how do they communicate with one another, and why are they so feared by the authorities? Combine the answers to all those questions with some of the best contemporary artists around and you have got Mytetra.


HEIST is the launch of Mytetra: promoting the innovative connection of people with art and technology. This newly created entity presents conceptual artists who have come together to give ordinary people the opportunity to peek behind the digital curtain into the world of hacking. But what is it exactly? Well.... you’ll get to see original contemporary art, made with a variety of methods and disciplines, but converted into text. Not just any text, but text that says nothing... AND it is in an environment which only a hacker would see - think scrolling green text on black, of 90s chat rooms.

With Zoom fatigue this is an opportunity to be just an identity and an idea. No faces on screen and no voices to be heard. It’s online. But it’s not your internet. Welcome to the hacker’s realm. 
Guests can either participate or view. Either way, you’ll need to register ahead of the internet exhibition, by submitting your email address and following Mytetra’s facebook or instagram pages. Join the community ahead of the event and you will be sent a link to the website before the show begins.

Blurring the lines between audience and artwork has been done
before, but never in this context. At a time when so much around data is in question and dispute, could there be a more perfect time to see behind the scenes of this often discussed but seldom seen world?!

HEIST features the artists: micrpboletan, Scott Bowley, Robert Good,  Evan Lee, Jessi Quinlan, Tom Unlikely, Mernywernz, Moogz, Julian Brown and Osian Janener, joined by filmmakers Alex Nunes and Finnian Moore.

The exhibition is at 7.30pm on Thursday 10th December. Head to www.yourtetra.com to register.
