Abstract

In 2013 I curated an exhibition entitled ‘The Global Archive’ at Hanmi Gallery in Fitzrovia, London.1 By way of the exhibition, I wanted to pinpoint conceptually and articulate curatorially the idea of ‘the global archive’ as an organizing principle of knowledges and as a communicative medium of exchange. To this end, I sought out artistic practices that figured interestingly the archive (and the holy trinity of temporality – past, present, future) through global networks, global knowledge systems, and global information ecologies. This article concerns one of the works in that exhibition, and a tear it cleaved in the very fabric of the time- space continuum of the Internet as an archive, and as archival; or, rather, the minor juridical disturbance that that artwork provoked for the Internet as a global archive or ecology of images.
