Looks like friend of the blog Sky Bruchard is apart of quite a interesting show. No idea to make of it, but seems like a fun event to attend and maybe think about current media.

from their site

Information permeates society today in unprecedented magnitudes and methods. Metadataphile: The Collapse of Visual Information features sixteen international artists who transform and recontextualize data into art that make socio-political statements. These artists appropriate, hack, pirate, and reorder metadata from objects, events and cultural phenomena into film, installation, painting, photography, sculpture, and sound.
