Our daily life is immersed in technology. Awake or asleep it surrounds us, enhancing and reducing our lives. Drawn as we are into the promise of a less cluttered life, of a clean and efficient world, many of the facts and realities of science remain a mystery to most of us. From the beginnings of the science fiction genre we seem to have revelled in this mystery; demonising, prophesising and fantasising about the future, or yearning for a nostalgia-driven past.
This exhibition brings together artists who in one way or another, use, manipulate, rejoice in, reject and reinvent technology. From wonderful, dysfunctional sculptures through to delicate data driven drawings we explore a myriad of appropriations.
