Digital Art exhibition: Nobody Sees Us: Rewiring our Communication System
The exhibition, "Nobody Sees Us: Rewiring Our Communication Systems" explores the hidden structures of communication networks and the ways in which they can be rebuilt, reconstructed, and reshaped through the digital medium.
This exhibition is titled after Sylvia Plath's poem "Mushrooms" .The show features works that reveal unseen frequencies and waveforms. Textiles link nature to the digital world, and computers expose hidden internet structures.
Through these works by artists Kate Geck and Mark Farid, we can see things that have become visible, to imagine and reimagine communication in new ways.
The exhibition juxtaposes physical and virtual worlds, exploring the similarities in the structures of nature and culture, and the trinity of waves, frequencies, and physics.
The exhibition invites us to explore our complex networks and rethink the ways in which we communicate with each other.
Curated by IESA’s MBA in Contemporary Art: Sales, Display and Collecting students.

Kate Geck is an artist living on unceded Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung land in Melbourne/Narrm. She works with emerging materialities to attune to the connections between humans and technology.
Her textiles explore thresholds between the physical and the digital, creating sites of resistance that think through alternative agendas for networked technologies.
She is a lecturer in Interior Design at RMIT University.
Mark Farid is an internationally recognised Artist, Researcher, and Lecturer in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
He specialises in the intersection of the virtual and physical world, and the effect new technologies have on the individual and their sense of self. Mark’s work embodies hacker ethics, such as a focus on privacy policies, use of surveillance technologies, and campaigning for data privacy and protection.
His work forms a critique of social, legal, and political models.
