Yuri Pattison uses digital technology, video and sculpture to investigate the political and social ramifications of the rapid development of technology and the depth of visual culture in the networked age. His physical works take advantage of the space outside the web to explore the notions of open communication and the flexibility of labor borders in the modern workspace.
Pattison's current interests include time and advanced timing technologies and their relationship to new colonial tendencies within the digital economy. Pattison's work explores the multiple relationships between visual cultures, space, communication technologies and the circulation of information. The artist covers the various media often juxtaposed or dispersed, uses data and metadata, along with a mixture of factual materials, archival sources and historical fragments, to construct and unearth complex narratives.
