That's a wrap on our latest show - we curated some beautiful works on the theme of Technology as Hands.
The modern artist and maker has proven to embrace technology in many ways - self taught techniques learned via YouTube, Google as a source of research and inspiration, digital photography and computer manipulations, CNC machines in woodworking and artists who have fully embraced coding and hardware to control their works and video content. Meanwhile, the omnipresent usage of social media in all its forms has created a platform in which the artist and maker can engage directly with their audience.
These factors became the impetus of the show's theme where each of the artists and makers embraced the challenge of creating new bodies of work where they can demonstrate that technology has been utilized in the creation of their pieces.
This venue was particularly splendid with it's high ceilings, skylights and beautiful courtyard.
And if you missed it, here's some gallery shots just for you -
