Arthur Wicks' new work, Systems Feedback 1976 / Information Overload 2019 + offers the audience a glimpse into a dystopian reality. Systems Feedback 1976 / Information Overload 2019 + is a ‘revamped’ iteration of the 1976 work, Systems Feedback, which reflects Wicks’ practice in the 1970s, encompassing mediums such as, photography, sound, Portapak video or slides.
Wicks uses contemporary digital and photographic processes for Information Overload 2019 +, describing the work as “self-contained and under surveillance, but still retaining the nostalgia of the Kingswood era and fridge magnet.”
