an exhibition of downloaders and uploaders
2430 Coral Street Kensington Philadelphia PA 19125 US

>get >put is an exploration of the interplay of physical, social and digital space — it is an exhibition about the ways in which identity, experience, aesthetic and meaning oscillate through the networked world and the real. Uploading and downloading are ubiquitous behaviors in our day-to-day, and so the virtual invades the real, data sets mesh, personalities blur, and aesthetics run rampant. With a book from The Institute of Social Hypocrisy as inspiration, six artists put “The Sound of Downloading Makes me want to Upload” into form. Their work takes shape as digital compositions anchored in spatiotemporal objects, developed through IRL + online practice for this exhibition.
