The artists present material they have collected since 1999, focussing on the way that personal narratives are formed and articulated in a post-digital age. This work functions as a starting point for a broader discussion by leading scholars and thinkers on the nature of power and trust in the age of the internet. Underlying this is an interrogation of faith: how has trust been recomposed by the internet and, equally, how does the traditional practice of faith question the way that individuals relate to each other online?
