Tabita Rezaire's Deep Down Tidal is an aesthetically imaginative, immersive installation of layered video and sound that explores "electronic colonialism"—defined as "the domination and control of digital technologies by the West to maintain and expand their hegemony and power over the rest of the world." Through dazzling and at times humorous net art collage techniques, the French-Guyanese/Danish artist—who now lives in Johannesburg—deftly demonstrates the extent of this control, from Facebook banning users for speaking out about racism to the undersea optic cables retracing the paths of colonialism and the international slave trade. It's a brilliant, beautiful show that should not be missed.
