Launching on 27th November 2018, seven galleries and organisations across the UK will simultaneously show Red Lines, a new video work by pioneering digital artist Evan Roth winner of Artangel’s first international open call competition
Artangel today unveils Red Lines by pioneering new media artist Evan Roth, the winning work of its international Open Call. The new work can be experienced for free by anyone with an internet connection anywhere in the world.
Previously I looked at how our gaze if affect by viewing digital exhibition. How does technological mediation alter our perception and interaction with digital art? With touch screens our interaction with online exhibition becomes haptic.
In this exhibition Roth presents the findings of his paranormal investigations into the Internet. Using ghost-hunting technologies and rituals, Roth ventures into the Internet’s physical landscape to reconnect with a network changed by monetisation, centralisation and surveillance.
Inspiration comes from the web, rap music, copyright law, data visualization, and graffiti (among others). Lately I’ve been interested in the idea of turning wasted time into art making time, and have been creating a series of projects that take place in airports…. a place find myself more often than I’d like.
