'Known ans strange things pass' - Andy Sewell

The photographs in the book are taken on either side of the Atlantic in places where the Internet is concentrated. Where the fibres come together, and almost everything we do online passes down a few impossibly narrow tubes, stretching along the seabed, connecting one continent to another.
Looking at these vast unknowable entities – the ocean and the Internet – we sense their strangeness. We can understand each conceptually but can only ever see or bump into small bits of them. They challenge our everyday assumptions and show us that the boundaries we put between things are more permeable than we might like to think. That the objects surrounding us daily, appearing so reliable and mundane, are actually parts of much larger, more complex, bodies extended across space and time.
The work is structured through the push and pull of intermeshing sequences. Things, in different spatial and temporal phases, intertwine and coexist. As we look closer, worlds we think of as separate bleed into each other – the near and the distant, the ocean and the internet, the physical and the virtual, what we think of as natural with the cultural and technological.

'Providencia' - Daniel Reuter

Providencia—providence—in its biblical meaning, describes God’s intervention in the universe, an influence beyond human control. The Providencia neighbourhood of Santiago de Chile provides both setting and title for this new series by Daniel Reuter. Architectural details, glass reflections, makeshift structures, barricades that obstruct the view. Figures appear, the reiteration of a narrator, or characters living within a fractured narrative? Reuter’s Providencia describes a place locked between a complicated past and an uncertain future. Beneath a surface layer of the quotidian, we sense the last big wave of western aspirations crashing down, conjuring the dreams and disenchantment of a world in upheaval.
