With thanks to Channon Goodwin for their support of the project.
Before Now presented a selection of four films produced between 2016 and 2020. This selection includes: Distinguishing Features (2016), A portrait of a place I’ve never been (2017), Computer Shoulders (2019) and Two Marionettes Collide (2020). Each of the films in this series has been made using video material sourced from a wide range of analogue and digital archives, and has been compiled using algorithmic or instruction-based methods. These works represent the progression of Lindo’s broader practice, which examines the effects of automated technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), on human labour, behaviour, and decision-making. Previously exhibited as multi-channel video installations, Before Now presented this selection of work for the first time as single channel films.
