JERWOOD/FVU AWARDS 2017 : NEITHER ONE THING OR ANOTHER
Mar 22 - May 14, 2017
Two new moving-image commissions by early career artists Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek made in response to the curatorial theme Neither One Thing or Another.
 
Patrick Hough’s work, And If In A Thousand Years, takes us to the Californian desert, where the landscape was filmed and digitally scanned using LiDAR, to host a Hollywood-inspired merging of authenticity and replica.
 
Lawrence Lek’s work, Geomancer, harnesses his trademark – the building blocks of computer gaming technology – to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. This computer-generated ghost in the machine discovers its own autonomy, and ponders the range and limits of its post-human powers of creativity.
