Fresh from representing Scotland at Venice Biennale, Rachel will talk about her work It’s What’s Inside that Counts, a digital film focusing on our dependence on technology.
‘The supermodel-like figurehead of a greed-driven data provider, is stalked by the leader of a band of guerilla hacktivist rat creatures. Their aim is to disrupt and gorge upon the addictive invisi-juice that powers phones and pocket tablets, gnawing on bandwidth cables like sugar cane, to suck at the sweet nectar within. Above ground, the citizens are infected with a plaguelike lethargy, becoming zombies who stumble in stained bed clothes in search of ever greater connectivity, totally disconnected from non-virtual reality.’ Taken from Rachel Maclean: Wot u 🙂 about? exhibition guide HOME, Manchester.
