Trace presents four works from six artists. Each work details complex human-technological interactions. The representation of a face or the translation of a body to lines, marks and signals gives us insights into the way machines imagine, see, learn and remember us. Contained in this process/system is the trace of our human/technological existence. Over time we have developed technologies to make interpretive marks through systems such as drawing media, perspective, printing, code. As we develop deeper understandings of these technologies we increasingly merge with them. This exhibition speaks to the complex relationships developing between makers and technologies and looks at the marks we leave.
One of the installations by Patrick Tresset, consists of five robots named Paul who draw a seated human model. We are now taking bookings for these portrait sittings. Drawings remain the property of the Robots, but we will scan 1 copy for each Sitter. BOOK YOUR PORTRAIT SITTINGS HERE: https://newmediagallery.youcanbook.me/
