Thomson & Craighead | Maps DNA and Spam

18th January to 16th March 2014, daily 11am-6pm.
Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, DD1 4DY

Thomson & Craighead explore how technology changes the way we perceive the world around us. The exhibition includes two new works: The First Person is an endless stream of first person statements taken from American self-help websites; Dundee Wall presents a poetic snapshot of social networking traffic from within the city.

The exhibition also includes two works from The Flat Earth Trilogy, both supported by our Alt-w Fund: A Short Film about War invites viewers to see a variety of war zones through the collective eyes of Flickr, and witnessed by military and civilian bloggers; Belief circumnavigates a globe of fragmented broadcasts about faith from YouTube.

With each passing season, different programme catalysts were released enabling research, production, education and outreach activity.

Hands on dialogue and exchange unfolded through experiments, exhibitions, talks and performances.
