TECHNO REALISM & THE WONDERS OF THE UNNATURAL FORM
Matthew gardiner & trinh vu
Curated by Emile Zile
Join us for the first Experimenta Social of 2018 as we deconstruct and reconstruct the natural form through the use of new technologies. Exploring the ways in which digital tools can be used to represent organic patterns and movements, we will delve into scientific theories that allow us to better understand the complexities of our own world.
Matthew Gardiner & Trinh Vu are artists examining and reimagining natural forms through their contemporary digital art practises. Matthew Gardiner’s international research makes connections between nature, origami and robotics – inventing the term ‘oribotics’ and investigating the language of folding, including the idea of folds to express the shape of time and space in our universe; Trinh Vu’s intricate paper-based sculptures utilise code processing and 3d modelling to create elegant artificial objects that embody the essence of what it means to be real.
