The title of this exhibition takes its cue from the 1964 artwork-poem
.Tunafish Sandwich. by Yoko Ono. The text imagines a performance event
which is at once cosmic and mundane, an action painting and a protest. The
artworks in this exhibition employ a recent developing technology dubbed
.augmented reality. to overlay, intervene and challenge the physical world
in much the same conjectural spirit as preceding Fluxus and Conceptual
works.

As the influence of the virtual expands, integrates and maps itself across
the material, strange objects, banal byproducts, ghost imagery and radical
events appear in our homes and spatially across the landscape. Closed
social systems lodged in physical hierarchies are layered, then pried open
by popup media available to armies of networked creatives. AR, as this
technology is abbreviated, invites artists and viewers to consider
coexistent spacial realities in which anything is possible anywhere.
Subliminal, aesthetic and political suggestions play themselves out as
techno-disturbances in a substratasphere of online and offline experience.
The cell phone or the CRT, are immaterial witness to these ephemeral
dimensional objects and relational post-sculptural events. The fact that
this current technology is primitive, amplifies its potency, with the
extra possibility of actualization tacked on to the conceptual gesture.
