"Public and Private Affairs" An exhibition exploring the shifting boundaries between public and private in the light of new digital interaction. It examined how communnication devices and social networks challenge pre-existing conventions and have lead to an ever increasingly experimental attitude to personal relationships, individual performances and collective rituals.

The images of mobile phone use in London, where we publicly conduct our private affairs, was shown in much larger numbers on a slide show on overhead projector so echoing the digital forms of communication, while the physically open transactions on the streets of Cuba which remain unchanged were exhibited on the walls. The contrast was designed to ask the visitor to reflect on the changes in the intimacy in our communications with new technology. The constant presence of the viewers gaze on the framed images of street communication in Cuba and the fleeting and yet recurrent flashing of the mobile images on the slide show.
