There are Times and Places

There are Times and Places Hero Image

There are Times and Places is inspired and informed by recent scholarship that reconsiders traditional ways of viewing and engaging on the Internet. The uncertainty that shrouded the rise of the Internet-age in the mid 1990s, namely the concern surrounding the platform’s anticipated effect on culture, commerce, technology and the various ways societies functioned prompted Metis Cree Canadian film director and writer Loretta Todd to ask “What ideology will have agency in cyberspace?” Four decades later, even as the Internet has become accessible to enormously diverse communities and increasingly representative of those previously denied visible, self-determined communal spaces, it is still unclear what meaning we are able to locate on the web amid ever more present polarities and polemics.

The project features four original artworks by artists asinnajaq, Dayna Danger, Coco Guzmán, Mani Mazinani and Wuulhu, each exploring ways in which the Internet functions (and sometimes fails) as an alternative, digitally constructed space for forming community, expanding identity, and knowledge sharing.
