I am an Australian artist and curator living in Fremantle/ Wayalup and born in Toronto.
I have run and founded experimental galleries and curated major exhibitions.
My artwork has been exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, regionally and online.
Produced for the exhibition PREPPERS at Fremantle Arts Centre.
Preppers often hoard or back-up files they believe will be important if the Internet were to collapse. Guy Louden presents an artwork that imagines such data in a postapocalyptic world. An onine backup of Wikipedia has been made precious in a data-scarce future, becoming a quasi-religious object of worship. The work questions what is valuable about our Information Age — what have we built that is worth saving?
