2012 DC Zeitgeist III 11787
This is the third in an episodic series of exhibitions beginning in 2008. The literal meaning of zeitgeist, in German, is “spirit of the times.” It is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, or political climate, the ambiance and mood associated with a point in time. For each show, we have invited artists to create work expressing their responses to the theme.
This time, the theme is “Too Much Information?” The question mark suggests our ambivalence about this subject; we are alternately fascinated, troubled, overwhelmed, and exhilarated by the increasing streams of information coming to us non-stop, from an ever-growing array of devices and directions. Mostly, we feel the effects in our bones, and now evidence is emerging that our brains and behaviors are being altered by the information surge and the means by which it is delivered. - see www.dcartscenter.org/event.htm
