"ExploWare Beta 0.0" by David Hanes. June 5 - July 5 2015.
"ExploWare Beta 0.0" is an animated remix by artist David Hanes made in the same vein as his “Aware” series in which online images of gallery documentation become the source material for digital manipulations. Hanes revises these representations of cultural objects in anonymous spaces using Photoshop. This version exposes some of his aesthetic influences, as well as his process. The result is a tension between abstraction and representation, an emptied showroom and a bleached-out artwork.
David Hanes, born in 1987 in Toronto, is an artist, curator, and DJ whose expanded sculptural practice examines the architecture of the Internet and the experience of art in the digital age. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, David lives/works in Berlin, Germany. He is represented by Birch Contemporary Toronto.
