WHERE | WHERE 6: PREDICTION
BOOK LAUNCH, EXHIBITION AND CONCLUSION
Oct 28 - Nov 23
To whom it may concern:
In January 2014, Where invited Sarah Meyohas to collaborate on an installation inside the Where shipping container. The theme was “prediction” and the outcome was BitchCoin. Nearly three years later, Meyohas has her own gallery, and we will be her guests. We close the loop of this project with four open source, essay-outline stacks on prediction: surviving Niagara Falls, shopping on Ambien, the NSA’s recycling program, and Stanislaw Lem’s “The World As Catastrophe.” We will also celebrate the release of Where 6, a book that documents and critiques these endeavors. We warmly anticipate your presence.
Lucy Hunter, R. Lyon
WHERE is a think tank and on-demand publishing project headquartered in an undisclosed shipping container in Brooklyn, New York. Its operations test the assertion that art manifests the same patterns, behaviors, and properties present in all complex informational systems. Acknowledging the powers and perils of systems-based thinking, Where suspects that the mechanisms identified as producing growth and complexity in large-scale systems may be directly applicable to the field of artistic production. Where uses the exhibition format as a site for researching these mechanisms. Where is produced by the art historian Lucy Hunter and the artist R. Lyon.
