Alt-w | MUD

Slime Mold

18th April to 3rd May 2015, Thurs to Sun, 12-6pm.
Embassy, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh EH1 3LY

MUD∞ engages a digital neo-medievalist application of materials, drawing on a ritualistic treatment of the art object as relic, or sentient person-object, to explore the contemporary political economy of the image as value-form and an index of social status.
