Q.E.D comes from the Latin 'Quod Erat Demonstrandum' meaning what was to have been demonstrated or what was required to be proved.

Including art by robots for robots, visions of outer space, and diagrams for mechanical copulation, Q.E.D. was an exhibition with something of a scientific twist. Featuring a diverse group of international artists, the exhibition exposed artistic and scientific processes to examine the unquestioning faith we place in documentation. The result is a challenge to the assumption that you can know something by simply looking at a model or representation of it.

The exhibition included works by:
Michel de Broin, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Sascha Pohflepp, Ulrike Kubatta, Scott Rogers and Trent Noble, Axel Straschnoy, Ben Brown, Garth Zeglin, Geoff Gordon, Iheanyi Umez-Eronini, Marek Michalowski, Paul Serri, Sue Ann Hong, and Piritta Puhto; Norman White and Laura Kikuaka; and Joe Winter.

Q.E.D is part of Rewire, the Fourth International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology.
