God's Eyes takes the voyeuristic dynamics of social networking to unfamiliar extremes by giving ultimate power to one user at a time, enabling them to peer into and engage with a panoply of other users' lives.

INTRO TO TWO STATEMENTS:

Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus proposes that with participation now a dominant paradigm, structuring social interaction, art, activism, the architecture of the city, the internet, and the economy, we are all integrated into participatory structures whether we want to be or not. The exhibition showcases work that subverts existing systems or envisions new alternatives to the ways in which individuals can take part, or choose not to take part, in social and cultural life.

White/Binary is inspired by two spiritual sources. First, Malevich’s Suprematist Composition: White on White from 1918. Malevich described his aesthetic theory, Suprematism, as "the supremacy of pure feeling or perception in the pictorial arts." The second source is a Talmudic commentary that suggests that an idea can exist in two contradicting states – be a truth and a parable at the same time. In popular quantum physics this can be translated into the state where an element exist as a particle and a wave at the same time.
