Douglas Coupland – Bit Rot

Douglas Coupland – Bit Rot

The exhibition Bit Rot focuses on the influential thinker and author Douglas Coupland (1961) and reveals the mind of the artist. The exhibition combines his own work with pieces loaned from his own collection. In the Spring of 2015 Coupland was a resident artist at the Google Cultural Institute in Paris. The result of this project, The Living Internet, also forms part of the exhibition. An eponymous paperback has been published alongside the exhibition; the book includes new and existing short stories by the artist. The title Bit Rot refers to the phenomenon of spontaneous decomposition of digital data. Ammodo supports Bit Rot because through this exhibition Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art offers insight into the versatility of an influential thinker and creator.
