Ways of Connecting

24 April - 17 May 2019
Ways of Connecting
An exhibition with Evan Roth, Raphaël Bastide & Louise Drulhe

The exhibition places in conversation two pieces that reveal and translate in new forms the infrastructures and mechanisms underlying our connected environment. They are also related by their use of P2P web technologies, an alternative to the currently dominating model of centralised web.

Red Lines, by Evan Roth, is an online synchronised viewing experience of contemplative videos that evoke critical points of the internet infrastructure.

Renaming the Web, by Raphaël Bastide and Louise Drulhe is an installation illustrating the structure and fragility of the peer-to-peer computer network that forms it.

Meet the artists!

On Saturday 27 April, 14:00, discover Red Lines and Renaming the Web in presence of the artists. They will explain and discuss their respective pieces with the audience.

The visit will be followed at 18:00 by a debate between Evan Roth and Raphaël Bastide, introduced and moderated by Sarah Grant (Radical Networks).

The space

Offices are often hidden behind a "Staff only" door. But as the construction of our future centre is still in progress, we invite you to discover the Ways of Connecting exhibition in our temporary office space. The two shown pieces fit well in this unusual setting, with the raw materials and recycled hardware of Renaming the Web, and Red Lines’ core concept of a work meant to be displayed and lived with everyday, whether it’s at work or in your living room.
