Random Access, Museum of Contemporary Art, Brisbane – 1989
This is an exhibition by six artists who are using photocopiers and/or computers in their art practice.
Their use of these media is varied. For some the technology is merely one tool among many. For others it is the vehicle through which they focus the majority of their attention, Some use the technology in similar ways from exhibition to exhibition developing consistent ways of working with it. For others the use of the technology depends exclusively on the work in hand. Random Access reflects this diversity.
At the conception of the exhibition all of the artists were living and
working in Brisbane and so were linked by proximity as well as by their use of technologies.
The exhibition focuses around the use of high technologies. It is hoped,
however, that the issues raised by the individual artists will reach beyond the technical into social and spiritual dimensions.
