Digital Evolution

New work created by Gwen Stevenson with support from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Individual Artist’s Digital Evolution Award. Working with Unity Games Engine, Projection Mapping & Motion Capture software to create a site specific installation that provides the visitor with an accessible immersive experience without the need for wearing headsets, entering dark spaces or following complicated menus. This digital media coexists within the same physical light space as the more traditional media responding to and reflecting it. It is not a separate entity in a darkened black box. The exhibition also gives a personal insight into the creative process, the evolution of a work and questions the role of visitor as passive viewer or active participant.
