THE FIFTH AGE OF GLASS

THE FIFTH AGE OF GLASS et al Projects 416 West 145th Street | Harlem December 2, 2011 - January 13, 2012 www.thefifthageofglass.info We let her take the empty seat. The door closed, the train resumed its course; our practiced gaze into the middle distance focused upon the object in her hands. Unexpected but not out of place, she sat transfixed, wiping away streams of tears as she swiped through the same few faces. The train slowed, stopped, the door opened again. DADDY and Et Al Projects presents THE FIFTH AGE OF GLASS, a curatorial intervention; a manipulated display of works examining the placement of the image within a sublime moment and in the very eyes of the viewer. Employing a method of historicization brought to light by Douglas Adams, the term "Age of Glass" refers to socio-cultural development defined by technological innovations in silica: for example, the microscope (2nd Age of Glass) denotes an age of empiricism, the invention of fiber optics (4th Age of Glass) denotes a time of systematism and hypermodernism. We believe the Fifth Age of Glass, although not yet articulated by specific technologies, is synonymous with the seamlessness of an RFID chip to the space beneath the skin, the starkness of a loading webpage, and the wiggle of a microbe in pond water. As an initiative, our goal is a similar brand of coexistence. --------------------------------------------- d a d d y --------------------------------------------- PRESENTING: DADDY, Andrew Graham, Avery K.
