Event

4THBIN is excited to announce our sponsorship with 601Artspace for the exhibition of Ars Memoriae. The curators will host a discussion with South Africa-based artists Lo-Def Film Factory, who created a site-specific installation for this exhibition, on Saturday, March 26th at 2 pm. Space is limited, RSVP to info@601artspace.org.

Ars Memoriae brings together ten artists from four continents who take inspiration from technology while simultaneously questioning the mainstream history of digital technological progress, offering alternative visions and new connections and speculating on the future implications of living in a technologically augmented reality. Ars Memoriae features end-of-life electronics to comment on the growing issue of e-waste. As human civilization continues to be deeply impacted by technology, including data, digital traceability, and machines, Ars Memoriae brings together a diverse selection of artworks to analyze the different layers of subsequent technological inventions.  

The exhibition not only makes connections between technology and its impact on humanity, but it also aims to recenter the African continent within the larger historical record of technological innovations. Ars Memoriae challenges the limited mainstream narrative of digital technologies and Africa’s portrayal of supplying raw materials for the technological revolution happening elsewhere.

Happy Halloween!

To some, the spookiest part of Halloween may be the ghosts or vampires, but to us, it’s the plastic waste that is left behind. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste are generated yearly from Halloween scraps, the equivalent of 83 million water bottles. Similar to electronic waste, the scraps that are left behind from Halloween will end up in a landfill - posing major hazards to the environment and humanity.
