Roaming the Internet

Yuri Pattison is an artist with a particular interest in the internet, so after being commissioned to do a new exhibition for Cell Project Space, he decided to divide it into both a physical and digital medium. Video footage and sculpture in the gallery will be complimented by online work that will remain visible to the public until the 2nd November before vanishing into digital oblivion.

The exhibition is made up of both virtual and physical datasets, such as templates, storage devices, text, source codes, etc. Breese Little has set up a temporary site for the public to browse. Web content is sourced by an artificial intelligence searching for information that fits in with the theme of the exhibit.

With man's growing use of the internet, Pattison considers how this virtual space almost becomes a physical place. Free Traveller was inspired by a 1940 novel called The Invention of Morel. It is about a fugitive hiding on a deserted island, who gets worried he'll be discovered when tourists arrive. Pattison uses the island as an analogy for the internet, in which we are essentially online tourists.
