POLYMYTH x Miss Information is a project bringing together a range of creative practitioners to explore the narratives and grammar enmeshed in the technologically accelerated now. Scripting realities and using speculation as a tool, the project seeks to create and illustrate contemporary myths in order to think upon the present, using Miss Information as both a character and a strategy.
In an exhibition space narrated by the disembodied voice of Miss Information (whose dialogue has been sourced through an invited cast of ghost writers), contributors April Greiman, Pablo Jones-Soler, Metahaven + Holly Herndon and Pinar&Viola will explore the magic realism of network(ed) culture. Amidst a cloud of data, propositions and multiple identities the project will investigate the frictions within fluid systems, and mine the subtext of surfaces to excavate what might lie beyond.
April Greiman visualizes an aspect of the MIS-infoscape of sea and air, Pinar&Viola offers a more is more solution (and wardrobe) for the question of unconditional love, and Metahaven and Holly Herndon engages the complexities of avatar anxiety, all within an augmented interior designed by Pablo Jones-Soler.
Using diverse physical and immaterial media, tools and space, this accumulation of artistic strategies is designed to render a total artwork out of a sequence of independent pieces.
