Throughout 2016, Artists’ Film International explores the theme of technologies, coinciding with the major exhibition Electronic Superhighway (2016-1966).
Selected by the Whitechapel Gallery, Scottish artist Rachel Maclean‘s pastel coloured dystopias explore parallel worlds. Germs (2013) follows a glamorous female protagonist through a series of commercials, as she becomes increasingly paranoid about the omnipresence of microscopic germs.
Atmospheres (2015) by Rohini Devasher imagines the interconnectedness of things, as we look up from Earth through a decametre wave radio telescope at the Gauribidanur Observatory near Bangalore, India. The work was selected by Project 88 in Mumbai.
