David Raymond Conroy — Hauling/It’s not the past but the future that determines the present
 
File under — video

Hauling/It’s not the past but the future that determines the present is a looped video work with a separate audio track. Normally displayed with distressed jeans and alcohol free lager, the work takes the form of a monologue talking on the effects of accessibility to information online and the culture that it develops while images culled from style blogs scroll back and forth seemingly endlessly.

As part of ‘Virtual Space/Digital Trace’ at Grand Union, Birmingham this video was presented in context with: distribution, lecture / talk, narration, reflexivity, social space, sound, the internet and virtual space alongside works by the following artists: Ed Atkins, Mark Titchner, Richard Healy, Tim Dixon, Tom Badley and William Rounce.
