Inverse Internet Operating Manual Curated by Dena Beard
Contemporary art is often engaged in reverting everyday things to raw source material, re-engineering them so that they work, but against their 'appropriate' function. Outside of the art world this practice is called kludging, in Brazil, it’s gambiologia, in India, jugaad--it encompasses many methods of actively responding to a scarcity of physical or cultural resources. Inverse Internet Operating Manual considers tactical alternatives to the normative functioning of the Internet, gathering together a diverse set of artists who cannibalize the convoluted, and often compromised, digital frameworks for information consumption.

10000 Pixels Curated by Jeff Thompson
For "10,000 Pixels", artists were asked to create three artworks using a 10,000-pixel “allowance”. The extremely low resolution becomes an aesthetic and conceptual challenge, resulting in ultra-low-resolution photographs, carefully crafted digital abstractions, blocky representations of physical objects similar to early Atari and NES sprites, or other unexpected solutions.

Dériving An Imaginary City: Virtual Psychogeographies
Curated by Andrew Venell
Branching out from Guy Debord's definition of "psychogeography" as "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment...on the emotions and behavior of individuals," this exhibition looks at the use of digital tools in mapping the interplay between psychological states and urban environments. The participating artists are all using sophisticated technologies, from biofeedback to GPS, as a way to augment the experience of their surroundings, to record or map their passage through both physical and mental spaces.
