"Craig Mulholland R.F.I.D."
2005-07-06 until 2005-07-09
UK United Kingdom
Craig Mulholland has used The Changing Room as a project space to develop a new body of work, fuelled by an interest in the emerging technology, radio frequency identification tagging (RFID). The work explores ideas of surveillance and civil liberty issues, considering the implications of this controversial new tracking system, which soon could replace barcodes on everyday items. The project coincides with the timing of the G8 submit at Gleneagles, in Perthshire, near Stirling.
Craig Mulholland was born in Glasgow in 1969, and graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1991. Recent solo exhibitions include Bearer on Demand, Transmission, Glasgow, 2005, Plastic Casino, Sorcha Dallas, 2004. Upcoming shows include a solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Project Space in London, 2005. He is represented by Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow.
Saturday 9 July 2pm
Craig Mulholland will talk about the work in the exhibition in relation to radio frequency identity tagging, followed by a discussion led by Dr Neil Mulholland on ambient technology. The talk will be followed by an informal gathering with refreshments! All welcome.
