Alison Ballard presents /Offline Is The New Luxury, /a collection of 
works exploring our relationship with technology and the Internet. When 
daily encounters are increasingly mediated by online technology, how is 
this affecting our experience of live-ness, presence, and time?

With live streaming, instant replays and video chat technologies, 
concepts of time, space, and distance, are changing. We ‘hang out’ 
together online, we ‘live chat’ with computer algorithms, watch cat 
videos over and over again and share world political events as they 
happen, ‘in real time’. Contemporary Western culture has become 
now-centric. Social media offers more ways than ever to ‘go live’ 
meaning we no longer have to share our experiences with others in the 
past tense (a photograph we took on holiday or a video of the event we 
attended last week). Instead, we share our every moment instantaneously 
in a continuously unfolding now.

Through this exhibition, Ballard reflects upon the current state of 
hyper-reality; the context-collapse of the real and unreal, the 
distinction between what is simulated and what seems ‘real’, and invites 
us to reconsider our view of reality.
