For The Lowry’s first major digital exhibition, a team of international guest curators have nominated 16 artists who use digital technology as a major component of their work. The result is an exhibition of our time, whereby the artwork presents a contemporary view of where we are right now in the digital age, drawing upon topics such as surveillance, artificial intelligence, voyeurism, and online dating. Revealing unknown, hidden digital systems and shedding new light on the technologies that we interact with on a daily basis, these 16 artists creatively challenge how and why the digital is such a driving force in our society. The exhibition will include works across a diverse range of media, including artists from Greater Manchester, New York, Berlin, and London. Key works include Darwinian Straw Mirror (2015) by New York City -based artist, Daniel Rozen, a piece which reacts to and resembles the viewer, despite using only straight lines, a camera and computer software, as well as continually evolving Destructive Observation Field by Robert Henke (2014, pictured).
