“Real-Time Constraints” is an exhibition in the form of a browser extension, opening the works as a series of pop-ups over the duration of a typical working day and interrupting the screen to provide a ‘stopping cue’ from relentless scrolling, email notifications and other computer-centered, interface-driven work.
This group exhibition is produced by arebyte and features works by artists working within the realms of artificial intelligence, algorithms, machine learning, big data, and interventions in web-based platforms. Real-Time Constraints presents itself as a benevolent invasion – the size, quantity, content and sound of the pop-ups have been decided upon by each artist to feed into the networked performance. The exhibition is experienced through a synchronised global approach where viewers encounter the same pop-ups at the same time no matter which time zone they are in. Featuring works by Gretchen Andrew, Sofia Crespo, DISNOVATION, Jake Elwes, Ben Grosser, Libby Heaney, and Joel Simon. Co-curated with Luba Elliott.
