Nowadays, IT is at the heart of almost all human activity. Has it helped to make us more autonomous citizens? Or has it transformed us into passive consumers of a market which became globalized? We are not even aware that, at the heart of technology, two rationales are now clashing: since the 80’s, the emancipatory principles of free software movements began to attack the exclusive and “private” ones defending intellectual property rights. Free software, free seeds, free medicine, free knowledge… Focusing on freedom, cooperation and sharing, these movements aim to restore the users’ autonomy and power, leading to a world free of patents, for the benefit of the common good.
Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
