The program for the Westpac HQ Prism screened a series of 12 Australian and international video artists. Titled Little Rituals, the selected works related to ideas surrounding repetition, the automaton and the relationship between humans and technology. Many of the works deliberately contrasted with the sleek, sterile surroundings. Profiling handmade, lo-fi productions the selected works sought to highlight the poetry and politics in everyday acts, and draw the imagination away from the monotony of capitalist structure.
