Private view
7 pm - 11 pm BST (2 - 6pm EDT / 11am – 3pm PDT)

bubblebyte.org is pleased to present The Making of, a solo exhibition of works by London based artist Yuri Pattison.

Pattison’s practice reflects on the impact of digital media on our understanding of reality, highlighting inconsistencies in the system of representation. Mastering a huge variety of media, his work often uses different devices to explore the strengths and limits of digital communication.

For the show, The Making of, the first solo show of the artist on bubblebyte.org, Pattison reflects on how the internet influences ideas of space, time and memory, flattening their defining attributes whilst also distorting their essence.

The shifting image will be in constant transformation, offering a slightly different version of the assemblage on every view, unique but also universal. Each element in the image, being virtual or physical, is filtered through personal memories to become something archetypal activating ideas connected with places and their vision through the web.

The work The Making of is a live Google Drive Doc in constant flux that will evolve during the course of the show. The classical format of the .doc, becomes a way to explore ideas of collective ownership of rights, freedom of visual expression and private/public format, whilst highlighting issues of economic and political control of images and ideas. At the end of the show, the google drive doc will be converted to PDF and made available for print on demand.

cmoscosmos is a layered video and image piece playing with ideas of digital representation, collaging urban realities and architecture with personal and found images until the point of abstraction. As a fluid beautiful scenario, the work has the ability of eluding space and time, suggesting visual clues to reveal leaks in the way places are portrayed on the internet.

The private view attendees will receive a unique, depending on location, downloadable artefact exclusively created by the artist.
