From Computer to Gallery – Part One: Witchcraft

Brenna Murphy - Liquid Envelope

Sara Ludy - Rose (detail)

Digital artist Nicolas Sassoon curates an exhibition featuring four artists whose works incorporates metaphysical themes in a time of digital creativity. This group of artists  (with the exception of Brenna Murphy) was originally involved in an early web-based collective entitled ‘Computers Club’, producing images, GIFs, videos and HTML pages exhibited online.

Brenna Murphy displays prints and sculptures resembling electronic circuits from another primitive ethnographic time, Sara Ludy crafts a poetic multi-media sculpture on the connection between physical and digital body, Laura Brothers draws enigmatic figures through noisy pixels and minimal geometry, while Krist Wood elaborates composite images of atmospheric dreams.

This is the first of two interviews examining how galleries are approaching the shift in contemporary art production and exhibition in an era of personal computing. I talk to Nicolas about the show, the transference from digital files to physical spaces, and how independent galleries are adapting to these shifts.

More images below, and check out her murals on Instagram.

My favourite part of attending the Pow! Wow! Hawaii festival each year is getting to meet so many new people. This year I became fast friends with Anna and Christina from VSCO who, along with my pal photographer Carmen Chan, interviewed many of the artists and produced a bunch of mini stories about the event. You can check out their coverage over on VSCO’s Pow Wow Hawaii Journal and be sure to check out their main feature on James Jean here.
