The artists exhibiting explored a range of important questions about our ever-changing and increasingly dependent relationship with technology.
Using a variety of media, the artists invited audiences to reflect on their own reality and think about how new advances in technology might affect our daily lives. Interactive machines and augmented realities took over the gallery spaces to highlight pertinent themes of how technology might simultaneously govern us, whilst also offering new possibilities and freedom.
All of the participating artists were winners or finalists of the Lumen Prize for Digital Art, a UK-based award that runs a global juried competition as well as exhibitions and events around the world. They are ::vtol:: (RU), Rachel Ara (UK), Stanza (UK), Molly Soda (US) Nicole Ruggiero (US), Refrakt (DE), Carla Gannis (US) and Anna Ridler (UK).
