Front Window Gallery is pleased to present Degraded Network, an installation by Michael NeffDegraded Network addresses our contemporary experience of the world mediated by our interconnected devices and their screens. This multimedia installation elevates the humble loading gif, presenting it in outsized fashion and seen through a matrix of loading progress bars, which have been cut through sheets of paper that black out the gallery window. Degraded Network offers the viewer a two-part experience: By day, it is a quiet, dark, curious site of potential; at night, it becomes a mesmerizing, glowing analogue of a media screen, with the colorful light of a pulsating animated gif peeking through.
