The conclusion of analog television broadcasting in the U.S. can be understood as heralding the arrival of the digital era. The End of Analog is an exhibition that marks this historic transition with an exploration of technology’s shifting significance on our culture, as well as on individuals. The move from analog to digital opens up a space of uncertainty regarding the status of physical objects and bodies, leading us to ask: What is materiality in the digital age? The artists in this show prefigure the post-analog landscape, creating objects and images that explore this looming question from multiple angles.
