Since the dawn of the digital, artists have been investigating the materiality of new technology and uncovering its craggy edges. New tribes are battling over virtual turf and others becoming extinct, leaving a landfill of virtual waste to rot and disappear. So, what myths and stories can be excavated and restored from these virtual artefacts?
Featuring the work of seven emerging and established artists, working across film, performance, sculpture and writing, Last words, so it goes presents some of the challenges, fears and solutions to unchartered digital legacies. Tied by their archaeological and shamanic methods of storytelling, each artist encourages the viewer to step into a space where virtual phenomena collide with the analogue.
