EXIT | UNSW Galleries
Galleries are proud to present the Australian premiere of a major new
installation which holds a dramatic mirror to some of the immense challenges
confronting the world today. EXIT is a picture of a planet in trouble.
In an immersive, 360-degree installation, EXIT visually correlates global human migratory trends with urgent social and economic issues: increasing urbanisation, economic displacement, political disruption, climate change, natural disasters, and deforestation. Data gathered from over one hundred sources is geocoded, processed through a programming language, and presented visually by a rotating globe that translates statistics into maps, texts, and trajectories as it orbits the space.
by the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris based on an idea
by Paul Virilio created by Diller Scofidio + Renfro with Laura
Kurgan, Mark Hansen, Ben Rubin in collaboration with Robert Gerard
Pietrusko, Stewart Smith.
