Carbon Data

New Age Sin and Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend by Jade Annaw

Commissioned & curated by SPUR

 

Carbon Data is the endless repetition of two video works by artist Jade Annaw. The two videos take the idea of the endless loop and connectivity as their starting point, using video collage to explore our need to monitor and maintain our relationships with technology and the online realm. Freedom comes through our world wide exploration through our flat screen, yet what happens to our unintentional archive of digital material which could be gathered, harvested, stored forever. Are we stored forever through Facebook as our ashes can be stored forever in a man made diamond, or should we let ourselves digitally degrade. Thanks to Jade for letting us continue on our journey through digital purgatory.
