Archive Fever

June 07, 2005, through October 23, 2005
A Digital Wonder Room by MANUAL



Temporary Exhibitions, Harrington Gallery


Husband-and-wife digital artist team Ed Hill and Suzanne Bloom, known collectively as MANUAL, presented their latest work, a site-specific installation commissioned by the Hood on the occasion of the museum’s twentieth anniversary. Reconsidering the intersections between art history, culture, and technology, this work explores the museum’s vast collection in playful and unexpected ways. Archive Fever unfolds at a changing pace that is completely determined by the computer program itself, so it is unlikely that repeat visitors to the museum would ever see the same form twice.

This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and generously supported by the Harrington Gallery Fund.
