Simon Fujiwara at The Shed in New York

Simon Fujiwara’s work ‘Empathy I’ will be shown in the group exhibition “Manual Override” at The Shed alongside Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sondra Perry, Martine Syms and Morehshin Allahyari. In Manual Override the artists critique the social, cultural, and ethical issues embedded in emerging technological systems ranging from mass surveillance to predictive policing.  Working closely with a theme park ride production company, Simon Fujiwara has developed an immersive simulator ride experience for two people, who experience a ride through the real world as we experience it today: mediated daily through a flood of hyper-images, which has begun to collapse the very sense of reality with the images we consume. 13.11.19 – 12.1.20
