The starting point of this exhibition which brings together eight artists of different nationalities, is the short story Fragments of a Hologram Rose written in 1977 by William Gibson. We thank its author, particularly known for his novel Neuromancer and creator of the term cyberspace, for permitting us to use the title of his short story for our exhibition, which takes a personal look at this dislocated story where poetic hallucinations contaminate communication networks.
