Artist Andrew Milne delivers a talk on his exhibition 'Apparatus'. 'Apparatus' ran from January 17 to March 1, 2014 at RAW: Gallery of Architecture and Design and was co-presented by Video Pool Media Arts Centre and RAW Gallery.
Apparatus is the construction of mechanism as ruin. It is a collection of decaying monuments that realize a historical vision of future utopias, dragging them back toward obsolescence, futility and critique. The exhibition commemorates a future where vision is total and simultaneous; where Cinema has eclipsed experience.
