Ant Dickinson

Digital Alienation

1st - 28th February 2018

Skelf is pleased to present Digital Alienation by Ant Dickinson with accompanying text by Artemis Crowley. The exhibition consists of three separate yet corresponding interactive works created using Javascipt, a web coding language. Using an entirely virtual medium, Digital Alienation explores physical, human ideas of loneliness, emphemerality and the organic within the machine. What begin as recognisable structures are quickly abstracted as we travel within them, creating a disorienting maze that alters our relationships with both form and content.

Working with text by writer and artist Artemis Crowley, Ant Dickinson allows us to visually manipulate her words, distorting and rearranging their meaning and sequence. There is no concrete terra-firma in the virtual space. Digital Alienation highlights the disengagement we have with content and message- everything is fluid, re-interpretable.
