Samsung Art+Prize


address data spriteAs part of the Samsung Art+Prize, I  tweeted the whole of the data sprite timeline of Self Portrait: Arnolfini.  



Recalled from composite memory on the eve of our centenary in 2061, three relational threads are intertwined;

1. social and financial organisation

2. technological innovation

3. art and its institutions

The complete timeline of institutional self consciousness, 2061-1831; starts with riots.

You can read a data sprite snippet, or see the beautiful book designed by Stephen Coates, published by Arnolfini and available from Cornerhouse.



See the physical installation of Self Portrait, part 1, or part 2, or the Futures workshop
