onedotzero co-curated a seminal exhibition with the V&A. Decode featured existing work and new commissions by established international artists and designers that showcased the latest developments in digital and interactive design.
Decode: Digital Design Sensations showcased the latest developments in digital and interactive design; from small, screen-based graphics to large-scale interactive installations. The exhibition features both existing works and new commissions by established international artists and designers such as Daniel Brown, Golan Levin, Daniel Rozin and Troika.
The exhibition explored three themes:
Code presented pieces that use computer code to create new works, and also looked at how code can be programmed to create constantly fluid and ever-changing works.
Interactivity looked at works that are directly influenced by the viewer. Visitors were invited to interact with and contribute to the development of the exhibits.
Network focused on works that comment on and utilise the digital traces left behind by everyday communications and looked at how advanced technologies and the internet have enabled new types of social interaction and mediums of self-expression.
The exhibition was centred in the Porter Gallery with a series of interventions throughout the museum including work by Jason Bruges studio in the John Madejski garden and a projection on the exhibition road façade by Simon Heijdens.
There were also a number of specially commissioned one-off performances for the sap weekend: Digital Design Festival from 26-28 February 2010.
