Me Time - curated by Sabrina Baker
Featuring Tully Arnot, Grace K Blake, Benjamin Forster, Claudia Greathead, Anna May Kirk, Janis Lejins, Claudia Nicholson and Giselle Stanborough, Me Time explores increasing integration between life, art and technology. Posting everyday moments to Facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat and plenty more social media platforms are now second nature and our phones just an extension of our arms the boundaries between our digital lives and our physical ones are increasingly blurred. Me Time focuses on the absurdity of living one’s life from app to app incorporating everything from lifestyle and wellness to relationships and dating apps. With artworks printing Justin Bieber tweets and website interventions to painted portraits from Tinder profiles and selfie sticks, Me Time brings together artists and technology thinking about digital culture and how it’s influencing life in the 21st century.
