.Title: Tagged: 5 artists working with RFID, opening 6 October at Space Media Arts
//Five new works by artists working with RFID technology as part an ongoing project produced by [ space.media.arts ]//
Opening Reception: 6 October, 6 - 9pm; continuing until 21 October
With a performance by Paula Roush
Electronic tagging technologies are increasingly impacting society and are set to shape the future. Standing for Radio Frequency Identification, RFID tags use radio waves and can potentially function without your knowledge, with widespread adoption across many commercial and public industries.
In this exhibition, the artist collaborative **Louis-Philippe Demers and Philippe Jean** are working with local shop Hollywood Convenience electronically tagging their grocery items to produce the artwork iTag. Using a portable music device, available to pick up from the exhibition, shoppers can listen to music generated from the grocery aisles.
RealSnailMail is a project in development by **boredomresearch**, using RFID technology to enable real snails to carry and deliver electronic messages on their own time, despite growing expectations of instant communication.
**Mute-Dialogue (Yasser Rashid and Yara El-Sherbini)** have created the interactive installation, Origins and Lemons. Arranged as an East End market stall the installation invites you to pick up RFID-tagged items and scan them to receive clues as to their history and origin.
In SWAPOId, **evoLhypergrapHyCx (C6)** implement RFID technology in the Antisystemic Distributed Library Project, an alternative library of shared books, videos, and music with venues in community centres and bedrooms worldwide, and through this acting as but one site of resistance against a de-humanising, de-dimensional agenda.
Arphield Recordings by **Paula Roush** records the sound of citizens scanning their Oyster cards in London Underground stations, and outputs them in live performance, installation and public intervention.
A new essay by **Armin Medosch**, The Spychip Under Your Skin, accompanies this exhibition and will be published on a new [ space.media.arts ] website: http://www.spacemedia.org.uk.
