var i = phenomena; var x = future; for (i < x) {i++} by Shigetoshi Furutani

var i = phenomena; var x = future; for (i < x) {i++} is the first solo exhibition in London by Shigetoshi Furutani. His work seeks a more effective way to deal with the limitations of language and to expand the expression of the two-dimensional form in an age of social media, engaging with the limits of chaos and order, proliferation and restriction. In this exhibition, Furutani juxtaposes digital collages of found footage and images and animations created by the artist himself.
