A Crowded Sky

Crowd psychology in the digital age

At a time when the theme of crowd psychology is particularly relevant, we unfortunately had to close the fantastic exhibition A CROWDED SKY shortly after the opening. We will reopen as soon as it is responsible and in the meantime we are looking for ways to bring the exhibition to you in an online version. For more background information you can read the accompanying publication here.

A CROWDED SKY gathers a group of diverse artists looking at crowd psychology from different strata. In the exhibition space artworks appear and disappear on various locations. Through this time-based format (duration cycle: 1,5 hours) the artworks merge into one conversation and simultaneously the artists fuse into one crowd. 

Internet 2.0 has enabled crowds to gather in new constellations. At the same time, developments in machine learning have increased crowd surveillance, while algorithmic crowd simulation is deployed to predict future human movements. At the same time, developments in machine learning have increased crowd surveillance, while algorithmic crowd simulation is deployed to predict future human movements. The exhibition deals with these new and urgent themes in an exhibition in which light, sound and different video works alternate in a theatrical way, like actors in a play. 

You can order the publication, designed by Jasmijn Visser en S†ëfan Schäfer, for free by simply sending a request to pr@impakt.nl. 

The exhibition presents works by Jasmijn Visser, S†ëfan Schäfer, Lawrence Lek, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Lantian Xie & Jaebum Kim, Tools for Action and Anna Ådahl.
Special thanks to Christoph Scherbaum.
