NETWORKS (cells & silos)

Sandra Selig, heart of the air you can hear, 2011.

Curator: Geraldine Barlow
Monash University Museum of Art
Caulfield Campus 1 February – 16 April 2011

NETWORKS (cells & silos) explores connections between artistic representations of networks; patterns and structures found in nature; and the rapidly evolving field of network science, communications and human relations.

We live between the paradigms of network, cell and silo, more connected to each other than we’ve ever been, but potentially more isolated. NETWORKS (cells & silos) asks whether a deeper understanding of network patterns might allow us a greater capacity to choose and manage change.

Presenting the work of Australian and international artists, the exhibition reflects the organising principles and dynamics of our increasingly networked society.
