Interactive Installation

Recently I visited this exhibition in Bristol, which felt spacey, new age and godly. The pieces were interactive and could sense when you approached, changing their lights, which revealed areas of UV drawings whilst emitting different sounds. This made the pieces feel alive, as if they had their own consciousness and were choosing how they reacted to the humans around them. The exhibition explored how we have fulfilled our ancient dreams and longings to be able to play God. We now have the power to create and manipulate life, altering it and bending it to our will. This raised questions and feelings of wariness and unease about the dangers of this enormous power. 

I felt like this work had connections with my own practice, interactive works that remind us that we are part of something much bigger than just our own selfish ambitions and desires to dominate and control the world around us.
