Exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with critical essays by Michele D'Aurizio.jason Matthew Lee has made two groups of works for the exhibition at Galleria Mazzoli. The ones in a larger format represent stratifications of lines: spray-painted doodles, photographs of tangles of electrical wires, orthogonal grids and circumference patterns. The linear nature of all these elements is an echo of their production processes (digital printing, computer graphics, etc.). They replicate and incorporate the diagrammatic nature of computer thinking, the property through which the computer embodies all the principles of linear thought, just as it ignores any command not formulated in keeping with the rules of linearity. If, however, we notice that many of these lines are circular, closed or knotted to themselves, then these works can be interpreted as suggestions of reflexive commands, codes that write themselves, intelligent machines. The smaller works blend images and codes of computer viruses with images of biological viruses. They are nocturnal, spectral works that point to the immanence of technology in human civilization.
