sculpture based on an old meme. It’s a taxidermy cat peeking through a hole in the ceiling. It’s cute and scary at the same time (like the internet). This was photographed at Carroll/Fletcher, London.

Digital Contagions is out


Jussi Parikka’s new book is out: Digital Contagions. A Media Archaeology of Computer Viruses. And our work is on the cover!

“Viruses, worms, and other software objects are not seen merely from the perspective of anti-virus research or practical security concerns, but as cultural and historical expressions that traverse a non-linear field from fiction to technical media, from net art to politics of software.”

Nice review on Flash Art magazine


Nice review of our show at Carroll/Fletcher on Flash Art, by Jeppe Ugelvig. “The limited physical strain demanded from the viewer due to the intentionally awkward placement of monitors in the space felt mostly like a mockery of the very real hardship digital workers undergo daily”. Am not quite sure if this is good or bad, but that doesn’t make it less interesting.
