Root Division presents an exhibition of 30 artists exploring notions of vacated information. Highlighting the content of absence\, thes e artists work with themes of censorship\, value\, memory and loss.
Using techniques of erasure\, displacement\, cancellation and extracti on\, the act of taking out information often gives new meaning to what is l eft. Simplifying or abandoning material can highlight essential content\, p rovide codification\, or stand as a subversive gesture.

Artists include Adam Whitney Day who scratches the surface off of currency and exc hanges the 'worthless' paper for intact bills and Robin Johnston who weaves the last Morse Code message sent before the language was abandoned for the now standard Global Maritime Distress Safety System. Ann Mansolino explore s the visual record of suppression by documenting Singaporean libraries' sy stematic censorship of photography books\, Will Tucker has transformed a bu bble maker into a machine that spits coal slurry\, and Ramekon O'Arwisters will perform using only a wine glass and an Aunt Jemima figurine.
