SPUR presents a screening and artist talk to launch its new commission A wonderful future where you have back up copies by Georgie Grace.
A wonderful future where you have back up copies is part of an ongoing research project into speculative technologies, wishful thinking, and the concept of The Singularity. Beginning with the claim made by tech entrepreneurs that in the near future we might be able to scan and fully capture the data of our minds, the video explores what implications the ability to upload our brains and restore ourselves from back up would have for our concepts of time, memory, experience and risk.
Georgie Grace is part of the Jerwood 3 Phase project and has recently shown at East Side Projects in Birmingham and Jerwood Space in London. Her practice considers the intangible quality of the digital screen through still and moving image.
