The Digital Pocket Gallery: Net Artists respond to their Hard Drives...

April 1st to August 31st 2002
Submissions Deadline: July 31, 2002

Pockets contain miniature biographies and testaments to our lives and forgotten stories. The crumpled train ticket speaks of journeys taken, the handful of confetti in your 'best' jacket of a wedding years before or the telephone number on the back of a matchbook given by a someone
who's name and face is long forgotten. Files and folders are the 'digital pockets' of the internet artist. The hard-drive is an autobiography in coded form. Dreams, ideas and waste lie hidden in these cryptically labelled pockets that have become the maps and landscapes of our
virtual lives.

We invite you to empty your digital pockets for inspection (whether real or fictitious) for an online exhibition at
