Ed Atkins at dépendance

Ed Atkins at de?pendance

Fitting to see him now in the white wasteland of art's daily now as a disenfranchised series of promotional images adrift, incommunicable. Recall when Dave had the long ethereal hair of a newborn, bald Dave. Now Dave is dying, an infant with melanoma. Will Dave die? The existential questions of Dave pertain strangely to us all not since we're becoming less different from a render, but because our digital selves are already more widely real, and then who is Dave, the elderly child, newborn Dave.
