Evan Roth [alt]It’s not too late to catch Evan Roth‘s latest exhibition – “Voices Over the Horizon” – at the Carroll / Fletcher gallery in London. It documents the Paris-based American artist’s journey to find the internet’s hidden infrastructure.

If you’re familiar with Evan’s work, you know much of it centres around the way technology has sneakily and pervasively wiggled into our lives. “Voices Over the Horizon” grapples with this same idea, only with a paranormal twist. Using ghost-hunting technologies and rituals, he ventures into the Internet’s physical landscape to reconnect with a network changed by monetisation, centralisation and surveillance.

“There are similarities between the two [internet and ghost-hunting]” explains Roth. “Ghost hunting communities talk a lot about ghosts as being disembodied human energy, so in that sense there’s a crossover because the internet is this place where we send all of our selves, packaged into the fiber optics as data and information.”  Carroll / Fletcher describe how the exhibition “reveals loss and an unconventional search to seek out optimism and inspiration in an increasingly dark Internet landscape.”

Evan will give a free talk on his current solo show at Carroll / Fletcher on April 9th. Click here to RSVP, or here for a review in WIRED magazine.
