Digital folk aesthetics meets the participatory reality show. What is art after technological saturation, matured in virtual urbanity under the logographic conditions of the post-commercial real? Your every move is charted towards self obliteration and synthetic reinvention, the performative demands of what material fragments remain. The book as a mass snapshot, the exhibition a proliferation, cultural categories consistent only in their ability to be re-ordered and re-mixed.

books is an exhibition series that explores these themes, that turns the performed real of cultural practitioners into the publication and exhibition of the local and material. A Library of Babel for the personalised era of public simulation.
