Infoworks

Infoworks is a site-specific installation looking at public access to information. The Stone Space Gallery is located beneath a public Library in Leytonstone.

Throughout history, societies have pushed back on the criminalisation of objects, information and actions. During Prohibition in America there were speak-easy bars. During the censorship of Western culture in the Soviet Union civilians held illegal screenings of American films in their homes. A new series of films, text art and objects will be installed into the Stone Space Gallery, representing a make-shift backlash against the censorship that has been building within the UK in response to the rise of technology and in particular the internet. Infoworks is an immersive installation depicting a dystopian society where freedoms of information, speech and press have been pushed underground, into a sanctuary.
