MANUAL DIGITAL features the works of eight national artists who have developed new visual languages by embracing digital tools in their primarily analog work. The works in this show are part of "The New Aesthetic", coined by James Bridle, and this exhibition presents artwork that is defined by or influenced by computer technology’s increasing role in daily life. The technologically informed practices of these artists reveal new potential meeting points about the time and space in which we equally reside. While the intersections of art & technology have garnered attention in the growing and varied genre known as new media, the practice of many contemporary artists relies on technology in ways that are more subtle to the eye and accessible to a wider public audience. Curated by artist, art consultant and independent curator Beth Waldman.
The interactive exhibition: KONTAKT is by two artists, Alex Nichols and Mushi. Their work revolves around participatory installations where the public is brought through experiences that are core to the question:
How do we navigate around each other?
