Nancy Daly | Save As...

Hamiltonian is pleased to present Save As... an ongoing performance and installation by artist Nancy Daly. The exhibition will run from February 24 – March 28, 2015, with the artist working in the gallery on select dates from 12 pm until 6 pm throughout the duration of the exhibition. Save As… will culminate in a closing reception on Saturday, March 28 from 7-9 pm.

In Save As… Nancy Daly will be methodically excavating her digital archives from 2002 to the present, printing out everything she has ever saved, including vacation photos, emails, resumes, essays and Gchats. As she makes the digital physical, Daly will transform the gallery into a visual diary of her virtual life over the past 13 years, exposing the normally hidden minutiae that she has gradually collected over time. The project, designed to overtake the gallery in a process of slow accrual, will construct a picture of the content-generating habits of the artist.

As Daly works, a photo will be taken for every day that she is holding gallery hours. Her process will also be recorded in a time-lapse video. She will create an encyclopedia set out of the material produced.
