Apr 25 - May 18, 2019
arebyte Gallery is pleased to announce World Capital, a new installation by Felicity Hammond.
 
Conversations about the homogenisation of the built environment have taken many forms. From Walter Benjamin’s writings about the effect of capitalism on nineteenth century Paris, to Ian Nairn’s scathing review of the growing ubiquity of town planning, the crisis surrounding urban identity has been and will continue to be widely contested.
 
In World Capital the conversation turns towards the way that digital technologies have influenced the global image of the city. Offering a commentary on the role that the computer generated architectural proposition plays in the increasing uniformity of the urban realm, the work outlines the ways in which the proliferation of the virtual world has contributed to urban indifference.

AUDINT UNSOUND : UNDEAD
May 25 - Jun 15, 2019
Private view Fri May 24 6pm - 9pm
Unsound : Undead brings together AUDINT’s research into the peripheries of audition as explored in their edited collection Unsound:Undead (Urbanomic Press April 2019)
 
From high frequency crowd control systems, whispering windows, and directional ultrasound technology to haptic feedback devices using vibration within immersive VR, the parameters of the sonic are constantly re-engineered.
 
AUDINT refer to such augmentations, which extend audition to encompass the imperceptible and the not-yet or no-longer audible, as unsound. The notion of undead, for them, is a cipher, constantly recrypted by socio-economic, political, aesthetic, techno-scientific, juridical, and other forces.
