Aaajiao’s solo exhibition, Remnants of an Electronic Past, opens a series of programme at the Manchester Center for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in celebration of the city’s position as European City of Science 2016. CFCCA’s following programme will explore the boundaries between art and science through the lens of Chinese contemporary art.
Trained as a computer programmer, aaajiao works extensively with new technologies through his work. Through reproduction of sculptural elements to represent a “digital graveyard,” aaajiao uses his own unique approach to contemporary technology to contemplate what happens to obsolete versions of software as technology moves forward asking the question, where does software go to die?
