Towards an aesthetics of failure

“Far from an inconvenience, however, such embodied, frustrating and universal encounters with technology were depicted as a type of digital aesthetic. Both Maria X and Ruth Catlow – co-founder of the Furtherfield organisation ­– discussed the work of Annie Abrahams, an artist who strips social media of its cosy interfaces to reveal the futility of communication and the impossibility of shared experience.”

Elaine Speight for a-n The Artists Information Company in the article Towards an aesthetics of failure on the Digital Aesthetic³ conference in Preston.

a-n Stimulating and supporting contemporary visual arts practice

The Digital Aesthetic³ exhibition is at Harris Museum & Art Gallery until 5 January 2013.

ps I don’t agree on the part quoted, but the article overall is sensible and interesting. (AA)
