Connected There But Not Always Here 

When: Jan. 28-May 19 2013
Price: Free admission
Some folks just don't understand the concept of "too much information," especially when it comes to social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Seriously, we didn't really need blow-by-blow details of what you ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enter this new exhibit at The Light Factory — it may have you thinking twice about what you "share." Connected There But Not Always Here examines the effects that technology (from Facebook and Twitter to blogging and interactive videos) has on relationships. It also focuses on the consequences of personal information being forever hoarded into cyberspace. Brooklyn-based photographer Dina Litovsky launched "Untag This Photo," a project that documents nightlife and the behavior and self-representation of women in social media. Meanwhile, Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman's series "Geolocation" uses publicly embedded GPS info via Twitter to track locations of posts and pair them with the text. The exhibit also features works from photographer Gabriela Herman as well as an interactive video — capturing snippets of gallery visitors — put together by Celine Latulipe, Berto Gonzalez and Annabel Manning. Be on your best behavior!
