remembering through copying
Jan 15 - Feb 13, 2010 @ BEB Gallery
QR (“quick response”) code is a 2d bar code that allows users to quickly access information & websites, hardlinking the physical world to its digital avatar with the scan of a cell phone. The disembodied structure of technology is disconcerting, but its use-value is not predetermined. Though the digital revolution is no longer a question of maybe or “if,” our future is now, so put on your gloves, get back in the virtual saddle & claim this world.
This show marks the reverb of a show RISD|architecture organized for a conference on the role of the digital in architecture schools in July, 2009, in Florence, Italy, called Beyond Media: Visions // Spot on Schools. Copying, an act facilitated by the digital process, can never reproduce an identical. The copy of the copy of the copy becomes distorted as it loses fidelity. In honor of the previous show, we are here to celebrate that distortion. Mimesis is creation; there can be no original.
We are architects: we own stock in the corporeal; the concrete; the visible. And we are planners: we design; we posit; we hope. So let us use both hand + chip: bringing lo-fi back to high-tech, we hope to re-insert the hand in digital representation. Whether worked digitally & reworked manually or vice versa, understanding & controlling both processes affords the maker the greatest authorship. We stick our tongues out at our beeping, twittering, hyper-voyeuristic universe, all the while keeping the latest gizmo in our back pocket (alongside our sketchbook). Wielding both weapons, we are looking to roll with the punches & come out on top.
To access the code, pull out your iPhone, go to the App Store & download the free “qr app.” Now snap away.
