Having harnessed and developed skills in coding and technology and notably featuring in multiple issues of WIRED magazine this year. Tom has used his technological prowess and artistic vision to produce installations designed as a commentary on the perceived value of human life.
Tom Webb’s work is the first of its kind, the use of binary code to introduce cultural themes on a real-time basis is seldom seen, something that will without doubt spark controversy amongst attendees. All the pieces feature real data on real humans, used to exemplify the ease with which data can be obtained. Amongst a political climate that is focused so heavily on privacy, Webb hopes to show rather than tell how easily our data can be acquired.
Through the application of coding and technological vision, Webb has produced pieces that have a range of themes attached to them. From Twitter patterns to mortality rates Webb’s exhibits are a subtle yet powerful movement, with the ever-present undertones of a society engrossed in the use of its technology.
Tom Webb’s work marks a significant turning-point in the perception of technological advancement to all those who attend at the Woodbury House Gallery. These futurist pieces carry a shuddering irony, as the vehicle for communication could be argued as a significant propagator of the very issues they hope to convey.
