it is elliptical because it is (partly) what it's about

online exhibition, 2017

postdigital culture museum

The exhibition it is elliptical because it is (partly) what it's about uses the loop as a conceptual metaphor to illustrate some thought processes induced by new technologies. Such loop can be found in the systems which are ruling our knowledge, our thoughts, our stories and action schemes.

Today’s complex world requires new tools for analysing and explaining it. But above all, it requires new ways of thinking. It needs a plural understanding of the world, one that is capable of seeing and comprehending, simultaneously, global structural intents and complex links between the smallest elements. It calls for a holistic approach to the system.

This selection aims to present art pieces and theoretical ressources that express this new way of thinking.
