Join Mark Davy, CEO Futurecity for this very special curator led tour of Transcending Boundaries
, three rooms of immersive installations, two of which have never been seen before, and which includes work from Illuminated River
competition winner Leo Villarreal.
The tour is free to London Society members
. Tickets are limited and can be reserved here
is a stunning, beautiful and immersive set of artworks that explores the role of digital technology in transcending the physical and conceptual boundaries that exist between different artworks, with imagery from one work breaking free of the frame and entering the space of another. The installations also dissolve distinctions between artwork and exhibition space, and involve the viewer through interactivity.
The largest room in the exhibition includes six works and feature Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries (2017)
, a virtual waterfall that extends beyond the gallery wall onto the floor, flowing through the exhibition space and around the feet of the viewer.
Encompassing the second room, Dark Waves (2016)
is a simulation of the movement of waves based on the behaviour of hundreds of thousands of water particles. The waves are created in a three-dimensional virtual space, expressing water as a living entity that immerses the viewer and suggests an intrinsic connection with nature.
In the last room, the darkened space is transformed by the presence of the viewer, which activates Flowers Bloom on People (2017)
. With the body as a canvas for the projections, flowers are in a process of continuous change—growing, decaying and scattering in direct response to the viewer’s movements.
