1998 :: FOLDBACK
The 1998 Telstra Adelaide Festival was the perfect opportunity to celebrate some of the artists and personalities who had contributed so vividly to ANAT’s identity over our initial decade. The FOLDBACK project, one of only a few events that year to tackle the nexus between technology and art, was structured in four parts: a forum at Ngapartji Multimedia Centre; an exhibition installed at Ngapartji throughout Artists’ Week; satellite events profiling contemporary sound artists and electronic musicians, and a national tour by multidisciplinary artist Mark Amerika.
The exhibition, developed by Adelaide-based designers inSECT22, explored the grey areas between art, technology, minds and machines. Digi-artefacts, online manifestations and hard copy works included Linda Dement’s interactive computer-based work pictured here, Cyberflesh Girlmonster.
