Cécile B. Evans “Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen”

29 May – 11 June 2016

Cécile B. Evans “Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen”

2014, HD Video, 22 minutes 37 seconds

Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen is narrated by the failed CGI rendering of a recently deceased actor, PHIL, and follows a group of digital beings—render ghosts, spam bots, holograms—as they search for meaning. Multiple storylines and materials collapse and converge to raise questions about what it means to be materially conscious today and the rights of the personal data we release.

Introduced by Susanne Pfeffer

Hi!

I'm focused on finishing a new work, What the Heart Wants, which I'm very excited about. It will open at the 9th Berlin Biennale on June 4th.

Until then, I might be slow at replying to emails- please forgive me! If urgent, contact one of the following:

Thanks for your patience and have a great day :)
