from the press release:
u s e r u n f r i e n d l y is the first solo exhibition in the UK for UBERMORGEN - the Swiss-Austrian-American duo founded in 1999 by lizvlx and Hans Bernhard. The exhibition features installations, videos, websites, actions, pixellated prints, digital-oil paintings and photographs in a hyper-active, super-enhanced exploration of censorship, surveillance, torture, democracy, e-commerce, and newspeak. The works seek to destabilise our understanding of the influence of technology, corporations and governments on our everyday lives and subvert the dominant networks of power that structure our world.
(...) The exhibition will be accompanied by a 32pp publication featuring an essay by curator Magda Ty?lik-Carver and conversations between UBERMORGEN and Austrian quantum physicist Dr. Tobias Noebauer and between UBERMORGEN and Edward Snowden.

from the invitation to the Ghost Factory:
"This is a voluntary work experience and there is considerable doubt it will be of any use in this life or thereafter.
Ghost Machine is an application [*] for instant remediation. It translates pdf files and quicktime movies into sound and video format. It is built with MaxMSP and can be downloaded on the Ghost Machine website."
