is the first collaboration between RELAPSE Collective
and curator Emireth Herrera. The exhibition aims to connect London and New York by using Tom’s Etching Studio and Flux Factory
, as such the title references the 3459 mile distance between the two cities.Artists and viewers will be connected through a 6 day live stream between the two spaces. With the time difference acting as a natural curator, we invite the public to witness the transition and coming together of the two gallery spaces as time permits.The theme of the exhibition arose from its format, inviting artists to build from their own interpretation of this ‘marriage’. The two spaces will host installed works and a schedule of daily performances. 3459 artists actively challenge the boundaries that physical space imposes.

Thinking like a machine, Niki Passath 2016
Opening reception: July 20, 7pm - 9pm
Robotic workshop: July 20, 12pm - 7pm
Exhibition: July 20 - July 21
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the human, especially the working human, has increasingly adapted to a coexistence with machines. The human has become a prosthesis for the non-organic body of the industrial factory. During early adaptation this occurred mainly on the material body, the hardware of humanity. Simple repetitive movements on the assembly line became the tasks of the workers to fulfill those duties the machine could not.
The promise was that humans of the future will not have to work, machines will lighten the load. However, the importance of ones identity being tied to her/his occupation became increasingly socially relevant.
With the invention of the computer, machines have moved away from hardware towards software; machines began to acquire a brain. In this new epoch, is it possible that human are still a prostheses of the machine? Now not only attached to the body but also an amendment to its thinking? It can seem that with the wish of creating machines that think like humans, we have also created humans that think like machines.
More and more a human defines itself by the work it does, no-matter how unnecessary or meaningless this activity is. It is often the case today that there is no need for working humans, as artificially intelligent systems can control and realize the whole cycle of industrial production. What do we do now that the human is redundant?
The July 20th workshop on Wednesday will allow participants to create a robot from scratch. These robots will act together to become a amalgamated body, which will enact a performance during the opening reception. The reception and exhibition will feature the robots made during the workshop.
