Strange Days: Memories of the Future review

Arts, Entertainment, Exhibition
Strange Days: Memories of the Future is presented by The Store X and New Museum, in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory. It is an exhibition that mixes video and film installations by 21 acclaimed artists whom all have exhibited at the New Museum in New York in the last ten years. Spread over three floors the exhibition is a dreamy labyrinth with every video presenting a new dream to fall into. It is an immersive show that considers how images shape memories. There is no actual time or theme in the exhibition and some of the videos might not even make any sense from the first glimpse, just like real dreams. As the official glossary states, “In many of the videos in the exhibition, technology is both a subject and medium - perhaps even a talisman - in peculiar parables that expand

All I Know is What’s on the Internet exhibition at Photographers’ Gallery will be on until February 24th. The photography display’s title is a Donald Trump’s quote from 2016, during the presidential campaign.

Analog and Digital: competing or boosting each other?

Analog and Digital: competing or boosting each other?

art, culture, Design, Entertainment, Exhibition
In recent years, there has been a trend showing young people shifting back to analog. Some claim it’s just about fashion, others see it as timely. One way or another, vintage clothing and analog cameras are being dusted off, and vinyl records are competing against CDs. It may well be about the pleasure of possessing physical objects. Try to hold a vinyl or a film camera in your hands. The way they are accurately designed, they’re not just meant to be used, it seems like they’re meant to be watched and appreciated. It could also be about the mechanic. The simple, understandable process of how a photograph is taken, of how the record player produces sound from a vinyl. Whether you like it or not, the change is happening. It looks like the ongoing craze for the latest tech product
