The Consequences of Going Digital

What are the consequences of living in a digital age? That is the question twenty-five artists working in London ask as part of a new exhibition at the Haywood Gallery at Southbank. Mirrorcity showcases newly commissioned projects that address the challenges we face in our ever technologically-growing world. Until the 4th January you will get to see a range of film, painting, drawing, sculpture, sound, and performance from emerging and established artists. For example, Dial Tone Operator by Aura Satz is an eerie sound installation in which the dial tones we receive on the phone have been turned into drone music to evoke the subtle hum of the city. It sounds like a cross between howling ghosts and whale song.
Tickets to the exhibit are £12 adult, £11 seniors, £9 concessions, £7.50 teens, and free for children.
There are also a lot of events scheduled, such as Mark Aerial Walller's Dial-A-Ride film screenings on the 14th, 15th, and 16th November. The documentary-spy style episodes explore the Thames's tidal flow and the gravitational pull of the moon.
