AUTOMATIC PROCESSING PITFALLS is an inquiry into the failures and misgivings of how we process the world around us. For this exhibition, Justin Watson used computer-aided automations to break down appropriated historically-based images, video and sound to rearticulate content sourced from the internet and from the artist’s personal archive. Online exhibit at processingpitfalls.info will also be available on the day of the opening reception.
