Hackney House has partnered up with Lumen to launch a permanent digital art exhibition in our first floor gallery. Over 6 screens the work of some of Lumen’s coolest artists from the last two years will be showcased. The 2015 Founder’s Prize winner Scott Draves will have you mesmerized with his work Electric Sheep. A generative work of art that can be installed on your phone, tablet or laptop, Electric Sheep, comes alive as your iOS or Andriod operating system ‘sleeps’. Here, you’ll be able to witness what happens when 450,000 computers come together to form one giant supercomputer. It’s the coolest screensaver you’ll ever see.
You’ll also be able to catch the audio-visual work of the Brazilian collective Altera. Their shortlisted work RHEOTAXIS places water at its center, capturing its natural movement by overlaying randomness, selection and design to produce what they term ‘dynamic paintings’.
The exhibition is open daily in the first floor gallery + bar at Hackney House.
