Bad Data 2

Christopher MacInnes

2017
C-type print face mounted on acrylic
40x60cm

£140.00

The jellyfish featured is in reference to the dramatic increase in their numbers due to rising sea temperatures, linked to the growth of heavy industry, itself driven by global capitalism. Able to survive in the ballasts of container ships they ride the global shipping routes, spreading themselves across the world, a brainless soup seeping through a planetary infrastructure, a psychic presence in the network. Christopher sees a parallel between the brainless, nerve-net, input-only physiology of the jellyfish and the passive semi-comatose engagement he sees many as having with info-capitalism, our emotional labour for the network transforming us from individual, thinking bodies into unthinking organic residue coating an algorithmic infrastructure. The tag 'F20' refers to the numbers printed on Fluoxetine (Prozac) pills, drawing attention to the subdued, indifferent mindstate they induce. Bad Data 1&2 were produced during the Bad Data Set project and are stills from animations generated by motion sensitive computers installed in the gallery that change the nature of the animations based on the presence of alien bodies in the space.

Mazar, Texas

David Cotterrell

£140.00

2017
lenticular print on aluminium
40x12cm

A lenticular print (a print covered in a sheet of lenses showing different images from different angles) comprised of a series of panoramic views, gathered over five years in Afghanistan and Texas. Two contested landscapes, Big Bend in the USA, a regularly surveilled illegal immigration point, and Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan, a regularly surveilled Taliban hotspot, are separated by geography and culture, but linked through aesthetics and myth. The two locations share virtually identical creation myths in which God, having made the world, realises there is a mass of material left over and throws the waste of his creation to the earth to make the desert. The viewer is offered blended combi-journey between these two sublime, yet politicised sites.

PlayThing

London Fieldworks

2017
3D printed photopolymer resin, buckram cloth covered box with blind debossing
11x7x7cm

£250.00

Toying with the idea of luxury goods and a concept of nothing as a productive category within the context of the attention economy, PlayThing is the product of an ongoing interest in distraction, machine automation and human automaticity. For the making of PlayThing, a small manipulated clay form was initially created by hand in an absent-minded way. The resultant form was scanned, and then 3D printed in a photopolymer resin.The combination of absent-minded and high-end production creates an non-normal experience of having yet not having.

Bad Data 1

Christopher MacInnes

2017
C-type print face mounted on acrylic
60x40cm

£140.00

The lucky-cat image links to the Kawaii (cute) aesthetic, which Christopher suggests is now a channel for contemporary emotional expression, covering over the pressures of what he calls ‘24 hour capitalism’. The background is informed by Danmaku or barrage video games; comprised of caffeine-fuelled visual and audio overloads which become abstract textures of stimulating feedback. Christopher again reflects these back as a representation of the overwhelming complexity of Platform Capitalism; the social media industry. Bad Data 1&2 were produced during the Bad Data Set project and are stills from animations generated by motion sensitive computers installed in the gallery that change the nature of the animations based on the presence of alien bodies in the space.

Omnia Sunt Communia

Jonathan Trayner

2017
linocut
21x16cm

£45.00

Omnia sunt communia – everything belongs to everyone – was a slogan attributed to the radical preacher Thomas Müntzer. Müntzer was one of the intellectual leaders of the German Peasants' War of 1525, an uprising that attempted to carry through the radical idea of emancipating the population from both their feudal and religious overlords. The revolt was crushed, but thanks to the printing press the desires of the peasants were preserved. Omnia Sunt Communia mimics the format of the printed ephemera of the Reformation. The latin text is surmounted by Vulcan, the hunchbacked, hammer-wielding god of metalworking, while underneath sleeps the crippled Saturn with his sickle. Saturn is the old god of time and change, at whose feast the world is turned upside-down, with the servants being waited on by their masters.

Super-Private: Scenes 1/2/3/4/5/6 (Leporellos)

Paula Roush

2017
leporello bookwork in six editions
30x11cm, expanding to 40-100cm depending on edition

£45.00

In 2005, two dozen rolls of undeveloped 35mm film were deposited at the Arab Image Foundation. Stored in a bespoke wooden box, each film was carefully wrapped in protective foil and enclosed in individually fitted drawers. It was the work of a Lebanese banker and the photos were taken in 1950’s Beirut. Laying dormant until their discovery by paula in 2015, the photographs document the banker’s lovers and friends; a secret narrative beyond the strict family conventions of 1950’s Beirut. The mysterious atmosphere in the photographs evoke a photo-roman noir including road trips, jet flights and secretive hotel room encounters. Was he constructing a narrative? Or did everything just happen naturally, in a glamorous pre-war Beirut and Lebanon?
