Aram Bartholl’s Dust Excerpt 1 – Winter Prison

From the work description at espaceimmedia.org:

Winter Prison, which was closed in 1990, is one of Sherbrooke’s oldest buildings. With Dust Excerpt 1, its courtyard is taken over by pixellated crates from a popular map in the computer game Counter-Strike. By setting up interactions between the architecture and history of worlds with distinct realities, the installation examines the different codes and forms of behaviour we adopt in « real life » and in virtual environments, as well as how these spaces are inscribed in the collective memory. Through his interventions in public space and his performances, workshops, exhibitions and curatorial activities, Aram Bartholl explores the social, cultural and political impact of digital technology and the Internet.
