Communities, controversies; species, technologies; ourselves, each other. Stories circulate everywhere. In the relationships we create, the things we believe, the memories we store and the spaces we inhabit. In the small transitions that often pass unnoticed, the events that influence our behaviours, and the radical shifts that reconfigure our lives, stories materialise, are shaped, told, heard, stored and recalled. By humans. By machines.
Emerging from family histories, ecological disasters, societal injustices, community identities, existential threats, the stories presented in the exhibition confront the entangled relationships between nature, beings, technologies and places in our world today.
The exhibition will be live at Cromwell Place and online at www.digital direction 2022.co.uk.
