The Spinning Beach Ball of Death is an exhibit by humans around the broken promises of technology. The exhibition will result in an incomplete media-archive consisting of work curated by artists for or about a piece of technology that hasn’t lived up to its promise to society. A celebration of struggle, failures and Lime Scooters (too soon?).
The idea here is work that is either using a piece of failed technology, about a piece of failed technology, or about a broken promise of technology. Could be archival in presenting a piece of work curated for a forgotten media.
