Hive mind (noun): A notional entity consisting of a large number of people who share their knowledge or opinions with one another, regarded as producing either uncritical conformity or collective intelligence.(in science fiction) a unified consciousness or intelligence formed by a number of alien individuals, the resulting consciousness typically exerting control over its constituent members.
Turning the hypothetical notion of a hive mind into a functioning organism, The Hive Mind is a performative installation exhibit in which artworks are curated as points in a nonlinear narrative scene. Staging a connectivity between its objects and environment, the exhibition presents a netherworld of dysfunctional apparatus and dodgy hybrids. The Hive Mind brings together artists whose work examines ideas of the system and network or resist any such categorisation.
