i ;_56<57 Eastcastle St London WIW sso www.carrolItletcher.com firstname.lastname@example.org PRESS RELEASE Exhibition: Brand Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship Date: m2 23 April - 11 May, 2013 Opening reception: 3Fhursday-19-July-2012-,-6-8pm Monday 22 April, 8:30 - 9pm Carroll/Fletcher and Eva and Franco Mattes present Brand Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship, a group show of anists whose works frequently challenge traditional notions of object production and material constraint. For this exhibition each artist was asked to produce an object using a custom printing or fabrication service. These services, such as CafePress and Zazzle, exist to provide users a cost-effective way of producing fully customized products, from t-shirts to iPhone cases, and a host of other objects- custom 3D printing from companies like Shapeways, full printed books from companies like Lulu, &c. These services have arisen as the result of increasing consumer demands toward customization and print-on-demand objects, offering a venue for traditional “self expression” to be imprinted onto commonplace goods. As the tools for image creation and dissemination have become increasingly democratized, these services attempt to expand this domain into the realm of objects. They are used here to transform images from a plethora of authors into a mass of commodities. Higher-Pietu+es Carroll/Fletcher has not seen a single piece in this show as of the writing of this news release. We expect this backwards approach to be filled with highs, lows, and hopefully more than a few transcendent successes. The result will be a gallery of art, artifact and artifice.

I am not a Robot
I am not a Robot. On the Borders of the Singularity.
As a harbinger of the (supposedly) imminent arrival of the Singularity, the exhibition explores the powerful impact of technological development on our daily lives.
One of the defining global phenomena of our time is digitalisation, which has transformed human life in an evolutionary leap over the past decades, rewriting centuries of fixed habits, forms and behavioural patterns. The digital turn is still ongoing, with our lives moving from offline to online, and the digital presence growing rapidly. Digital technology in its current state is a new normativity that is part of work and life: not an enemy, not a friend, but a natural part of life…
