Computing territories and their analog actuators

Mind the Gap project, third edition

Gorizia, 12 January – 9 February 2020

Biblioteca Statale Isontina
Parco Basaglia – Dipartimento di Salute Mentale

The third edition of Mind the Gap, entitled Recalculating. Computing territories and their analog actuators, is part of a project of contemporary art in collaboration with Parco Basaglia, Gorizia, the place where in 1961 the eponymous Italian psychiatrist started his own therapeutic and social revolution. The exhibition focuses on technological infrastructures and the relationship between people and technology, investigated through works by artists Sofia Braga, Emilio Vavarella and KairUs, a collective of two artists – Linda Kronman and Andreas Zingerle.

These works investigate the interaction between the real and the virtual worlds, reflecting on how the massive use of digital devices is inevitably changing our cognitive relationship with daily life. By bringing to the surface what happens beneath the shiny interface of the devices we use every day, the works on display here show the aesthetics and the rhetorics in action in the smart and dumb worlds, as well as their mutual contradictions, in order to deconstruct the illusions and false hopes of digital development.
