Work from ScanOps.
“Through webinars, installations, power points, performances, audio meditations and videos, Andrew Norman Wilson’s interventions into the brands and infrastructures of Silicon Valley and other worldwide tech corporations question the roles of labor, power and capital; instigations, integral to understanding the movement of information economies in the global marketplace as well as the power relations that emerge from within them.
ScanOps, titled after the internal department for Google’s onsite book scanning contractors, is Wilson’s latest series of works that reveal the software distortions and hands of ScanOps employees found in the photographic scanning site.
During June, ScanOps will be on view at both American Medium in New York City and Document in Chicago. A ScanOps subscription service and book will be published by Art Metropole later this year.” – Louis Doulas
