"No-one has ever lived in the past. No-one will ever live in the future. The present is the form of all life".
(The computer Alpha 60 in Alphaville, Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1965.)
The Present Is the Form of All Life: The Time Capsules of Ant Farm and LST explores the time capsule projects of seminal media art and architecture group Ant Farm and their contemporary successors, LST. Tracing the time capsule’s evolution from analog archive to digital database, the exhibition examines the mutable nature of time perception, rapidly accelerating media obsolescence, and our shifting cultural attitudes toward preservation and privacy.
