    Light Under the Ocean

    22 Jul 2020 – 19 Aug 2020

    Jed Gil is an interdisciplinary artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. His practice explores the history and contemporary navigations of place, space and time through landscapes and their connections to digital geographies. The exhibition LIGHT UNDER THE OCEAN is a reflection and investigation into online architectures and ecologies. With more of our ontology being pushed online what will the results of this mass experiment be and how are we negotiating the ethics of this new attention economy? Each work in the show acts as a physical instantiation of a moment in the development of the early Internet, throwing into relief the disparity between the ’69 -90s Internet and the social Internet that followed. The works also draw attention to the materiality of the system itself - an aspect often overlooked.
