Nicole Prior: Data Rooms at Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Wigan, Wigan 19 September — 24 December 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Inspired by the widespread but often unnoticed presence of surveillance technologies in the places we live and the electronic devices we use. Data Rooms by Castlefield Gallery Associate Nicole Prior occupies the windows of Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces Wigan and allows viewers to interact with the artwork from the street. The new work was commissioned by Castlefield Gallery and funded by Wigan Council.

Using security cameras, screens, projectors, mirrors and software patches, this work reflects back to us images of ourselves and others, and considers how interacting with different kinds of technology might affect our behaviour.

Please Note: No camera footage from this work will be recorded, all the data is shown in real time and will not be stored on any devices.
