Time, moving and storage is an exhibition in three parts with Takeshi Murata, James Ferraro and Ben Jones. Data/bits move over distance Megabyte had to be moved from Los Angeles, New York area. It is ongoing to decide and to determine how, when and where to move data. This reality. This time. Inseparable from technology and engaging with the real ordinary. Really the most exciting thing is that they’re completely new, and thus we ultimately have no idea how they might eventually affect our world. There is no theory that describes everything that we’re seeing.
