Leading Creatives Contribute to ‘Media is an Art, Not an Algorithm’ Electric Glue Virtual Exhibition

Electric Glue, an independent media agency located in the heart of Soho, has recently launched an online exhibition around the role that context plays in advertising. Each artist has shared their own take on why media placement really is critical to bring ideas to life. Alongside the exhibition, a book will be officially released on 23rd November. 

Contributing artists include:

Sir John Hegarty 
Matt Saunby 
Ian Heartfield 
Jon Gledstone 
Kelly Pon 
William Gelner
Nick Kidney 
Bruce Crouch 
Harry Warman
Flo Heiss 
Anna Arnell 
Johnny Tan 

Simon Orpin, co-founder of Electric Glue says; “It’s not just what you say that matters. It’s also where and how you say it. Context creates meaning and impact. Media and message are inextricably linked. So far there is no algorithm that can generate the magic that great creative and media thinking in tandem can”.

Sir John Hegarty, Chairman of Electric Glue says “since the beginning of time context has been relevant to the meaning and understanding of communication. Without context, messages lose their power.”
