Waiting for cache...


Waiting for cache...

Jack Harman


Gallery 2
Opening 03.04.19 6-8pm
Artist Talks 25.04.19 6-7pm

Cache is the virtual dumping ground for the poor images we never knew existed. It’s a temporal archive to aid in the acceleration of digital technology’s economic agenda. A vacuous space containing the hidden trace of our digital journey. Waiting for cache... aims to restore some thingness to the images found within the cache using this prompt as a starting point. By fixing them to mutually forgotten materials such as lint, coins and socks from laundromats - creating a material dialogue between digital and physical archives.

Biography

Jack Harman is an artist, artwork technician, perfectionist and day dreamer based in Sydney. Harman’s practice is driven by a desire to understand the world by disrupting cultural conventions to form new narratives around the subjects in question. Each work explores the material possibilities of objects and things, with a particular interest in the photographic as a translator of pseudoscience and experimental processes. Jack has recently exhibited in a number of group shows at Gaffa, Cold Cuts, UTS Art, AIRspace Projects and Front of House (a project space in his living room). He graduated with a Bachelor of design in photography (honours) from UTS in 2017.
