THE UNQUIET LANDSCAPE: VR TECHNIQUES IN THE ART OF GIBSON/MARTELLI

We are speaking at 2017 VR UK Festival at Ravensbourne 6 July 2017

‘Gibson and Martelli have integrated interactive narratives with humans in motion in a range of landscape settings from the Canadian lakes and the expanses of the Arctic to dystopian scenes in Bethnal Green. Since the late 1990s they have deployed a range of virtual and augmented reality technologies in conjunction with physical installations. This workshop explores their current work.’

STRANGELANDS

Exhibition continues to 4 Oct
Collyer Bristow Gallery, London

These are extraordinary times.

Of unanchored worlds, ruptured spaces 
Fabricated and dislocated places 
Alternative languages, signs and systems 
Confusions of reality and fictions.
Here are the dispossessed and the reinvented 
The unfathomable, the inexplicable
The vampyres, visitors and hoodlums.

These are StrangeLands.

What They Didn’t Teach You in Art School

We’ve contributed a chapter to this great book..
‘You have the artistic talent, but do you know how to make a success of it? The thing they don’t teach you in art school is just how active and engaged you need to be; you’ll have to become your own finance, business and marketing manager, as well as a researcher, curator and administrator.

Virtual Reality Maker Symposium

8 November 2016

With hardware and software and becoming more affordable and easier to use, VR is once again capturing the imagination of artists.

The potential for empathy, dislocation and shared sensory experience is rich for artistic work but the technology tends to be directed towards the consumer electronics market and ever more ‘intimate’ and targeted advertising.

Virtual Artists-in-Residence

October 2016
Gazell.io

We are pleased to announce that we are artists-in-residence at www.gazell.io for October.

During the artistic process a plethora of images are produced -often unused in the finished product and thus never reaching the public domain. These experimental images are part of the technical exploration process, provoking new pathways to visualisations – by-products of research, they can signify significant leaps of invention and potential thinking.
