• Simon Denny
  • et al.

Simon Denny is an artist whose work explores the cultures and values behind some of the new technologies that are changing the world. In recent years, Denny has looked at the exploitation of information in data-economies, using his work to visualise systems of competing political and economic visions, interrelationships of labour, capital, developments in technologies, and impacts on the environment.

In 2001 the artist working under the pseudonym L. Budd resigned, re-signing thereafter simply as “et al.” meaning “and others”. While L. Budd had been an inclusive signature throughout the late 1990s often signing as “L. Budd et al.”, hinting at the collaborative of unnamed parties, this was nonetheless a new beginning, a birth with an implicit end. Not the death of the author but the death of the individual signatory, and the emergence of a new collective framework, also anonymous. – Natasha Conland
