The World in Our Pocket
Paper, metal, brass, electronics
The World in Our Pockets is a collaborative exhibition between Grace Pappas and Jessica Wetherly at The Stone Space that brings together their mutual interest in navigation and the dilation of time.
The work is based on research from the archives at Greenwich Observatory and Science Museum exploring the evolution of technology to dismantle the accumulation of knowledge found within smart devices. The work refers to kinetic instruments and analogue mechanics that explode the black box of the iPhone. In the exhibition we use symbolism and the transcendence of objects through culture to explore differences between digital and physical spaces that enable us to navigate the world around us.
