Recent data leaks including the Panama papers and Paradise papers have exposed nefarious systems that normally operate out of our view – a parallel world of tax havens, illicit investments and conspiracies of corruption. In Andrey Chugunov’s installation, eight LED arrays flicker and sound channels chirrup as devices ‘read’ copies of these data leaks and, in doing so, erase them. Initially antic audio dies back as the glaring lights gradually fall dark, mimicking shadowy actors’ haste to hush up the information they don’t want us to know.
