Yuri Pattison’s (*1986) multimedia work explores how the virtual world permeates material reality, looking at the relationships between visual cultures, communication technology and the circulation of information. For instance, by looking at the phenomenon of co-working spaces, the kind of work that they imply, their architectural styles and choices in design, and the technology which they are dependent on. These examinations materialize in installations consisting of both sculptural and digital elements that stage relationships between their infrastructure—their media technology, the gallery space—and their social and political realities that their content implies.

As a part of Proof of Stake – Technological Claims, Pattison produced a chain of padlocks, each with an individual key, that was placed across the entranceway to the exhibition space. For this Jahresgaben, Pattison presents a smaller version of this chain. The inspiration for this work came from a real Chinese compound. Here the chain acts as a material analogue to the cryptographic keys required to access a blockchain, while alluding to the restrictive access to cultural spaces. As Pattison points out, the technology of the padlock is both a symbol of security (cf. computer privacy icons) and a tool of exclusion.
