Mika Taanila - The Future Is Not What It Used To Be
Erkki Kurenniemi - DIMI-A

HTTP is London's first dedicated gallery for networked, net art, new 
media & sound art. It will provide a public space for experimental 
approaches to exhibiting relational, technologically termed art. 
Dosensos and Furtherfield have joined forces to work with artists 
from around the world to develop alternative means of exhibiting 
online and screen-based projects in the gallery context. Artists' 
projects on DVD, real-time, net-cast and live art will also play a 
major role in the curatorial work of HTTP.

HTTP's debut exhibition brings you work by two extraordinary Finnish 
artists. This show offers London audiences an exhilarating 
introduction to the intriguing and dynamic world of technological art 
practice. The first of a series of exhibitions and events showing 
mixes of screen-based and physical artworks. Mika Taanila's 
documentary film 'The Future Is Not What It Used To Be' entwines the 
past with the present. In this exhibition, his representation of 
Erkki Kurenniemi's philosophical journey through digital possibility 
is juxtaposed, projected in the same space with a physical artwork 
from that same history, in the form of DIMI-A machine (Digital Music 
Instrument, Associative Memory).
