~ is a material investigation into the fabric of the digital image. The exhibition is concerned with the collapse of work, play and time. ~ interrogates the visual structures of video games and what makes these digital spaces so mesmerising for their audiences. The works in the exhibition are constructed from appropriated video game assets. Through 3D printing and photographic processes, assets are reassembled and made physical and static in an effort to demystify their fluid, enchanting nature.
