TIMO BREDENBERG
Without Friction

Without Friction is a fictional video about the ideology, history and demise of network capitalism. Its narrator is an imaginary artificial intelligence that explores the virtual ruins of Wall Street in order to understand the events that led to the rise and fall of network economy.

Join us for the exhibition opening on Friday, 8 November 2019, from 17:00–19:00. Welcome!

The video is divided into episodes that explore the evolution of the network economy and the changing status of human labour in conditions of ever-increasing technological automation. The title is a reference to an idea presented by Bill Gates in the 1990s, of the Internet as a technology that would remove friction from capitalism. The work is based on documents from the archives of the Museum of American Finance and on video interviews with finance technology professionals provided by the New York Historical Society. The 3D photogrammetry models are created from photographs Bredenberg took of buildings related to finance and technology in New York in January–February 2018.

Timo Bredenberg (b. 1984) is a visual artists from Tampere who works with digital media. His most recent works have addressed the ongoing changes in work and economy through speculative fiction.

Bredenberg’s artistic work is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Finnish Cultural Institute in New York.
