On Friday September 6, at 7:30pm, NeMe has the great pleasure of inviting you to the exhibition opening of Through Other Eyes, curated by James Bridle.
Throughout the Twentieth Century, the ability to see the world became ever more separate from human vision; in the Twenty-First, the ability to think and understand the world will follow. While they began by seeing the world, cameras are now starting to process and analyse what they see; to make decisions about the world they share with us. Computer processing generates whole new worlds in which nascent intelligences gambol and play. The vast memory banks and unsleeping awareness of contemporary computation allow for near-endless observation and infinite cogitation, changing our perceptions of time itself. Planetary-scale networks allow visions of one place to be instantly, and constantly, relayed elsewhere. The mechanical eye has become the machine eye, freed not merely from immobility, but from all other human limits.
