Constellation of a Consciousness
Featuring two separate but interrelated bodies of work, Matthew Williamson's solo-exhibition, Constellation of a Consciousness, is like peering into the brain of the Internet while it doesn't know you're looking.
The series Constellation of a Consciousness features a number of hacked websites that reshape the ubiquitous and practical tools of Web 2.0 (such as Google Docs) for futuristic and spiritual purposes. You can chat with the Oracle, provided he happens to be online, or you can gaze at passing stars as they move past the cells of your Google Spreadsheet. Down and Out, a series of animated videos with voice-over narration from Williamson, featuring everyday philosophizing that Williamson claims is "like being present at the conception of a Facebook status update."
