Denny‘s work focuses on Internet politics, technological obsolescence and national identity.
“It’s a terriblie recognition, and one that has driven some who’s absorbed it to desperation and madness. Walking through London’s chilly dusk streets to purchase a pencil, Virgina Woolf recorded acute observations of urban life in 1930 but remained unaware of the information moving in invisible waves through the air.” – Here Begins the Dark Sea, Chris Kraus.
