Arguably the opus of JODI's videogame deconstructions: SOD, is included in the exhibition Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future at Tai Kwun in Hong Kong.
Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future examines how the genre’s aesthetics and futurisms have also bled into art and visual culture. The exhibition centres around what the influential science fiction author William Gibson called “the meta-city,” a sprawling urban space just as virtual as it is real. Whether through spectacular panoramas of virtual mega cities, or fleeting snapshots of their alluring underworlds and dissonant denizens, the exhibition explores life in the meta-city, and how the cyber metropolis has transformed from a fantastic metaphor for life in the future into an inescapable, looping present.
The exhibition will be on view at the JC Contemporary , co-presented by Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
Open from 5 October 2019 - 4 January 2020
