DESCRIPTION

Entropy is the inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society. This exhibition examines new ideas of entropy in a technology-driven age. How is the collective experience of time altered with advances in technology and social media? As technology advances at an ever increasing pace, artists are faced with the inevitable decay of the current mode of production. Like Robert Smithson's Hotel Palenque we see notion of "ruin in reverse," a simultaneous decay and renovation.
