Exhibition open Friday 24th – 27th August 2018, 12-6pm.
A Catalogue of Errors exhibition is an exploration of materiality of site and technology. Milnes showcases new works which focus on errors inherent within digital technologies, exposing failure as a method for generativity within technology. His recent research concentrates on the materiality of data, surveillance and 3D technologies that are subject to cloud computing. Environmental and historical concerns emanate from a collection of works which explore the locations of cloud computing sites and the (precious) materials which compose them. These range from copper quarries to e-waste sites, embarking on an investigation into the life-span of media which surveil us. The exhibition demonstrates this in a series of new digital prints, sculptures and installations.
