Morphogenetic Creations at Watermans
I’m very happy to announce my first major exhibition in London, which will be taking place at the Watermans Centre from 13th June to 21st July. The Watermans Centre has a long history of promoting new media art, and I’m very honoured to have been invited to stage a solo exhibition in their main gallery space.
The exhibition will focus on three different phases of my work exploring morphogenesis: the original Cellular Forms, the Plant Forms and the most recent Hybrid Forms. Within each phase I will be exploring different ways of viewing the work, and how each representation reveals different aspects of the original data that comes from the simulations.
The Computer Arts Society will be holding an event on Wednesday 15th June to launch the exhibition. The event will start with a talk by Matthew Jarron, from the University of Dundee. This will be about Scottish mathematician and zoologist D'Arcy Thompson, whose book ‘On Growth and Form’ has been hugely influential on my work. That will be followed by drinks, the private view and a tour of the exhibition.
The event is free, but you will need to book tickets. Here's the booking page:
If you’re in London it would be really great to see you there. It should be an interesting exhibition incorporating a number of new ways of presenting work that I've been actively experimenting with. These include 3D printing, a holographic computer display, and an installation that uses projections together with a custom built stereo viewer to show my recent Hybrid Forms in a new way.
