Test Pattern

A group exhibition featuring works by:

Tom Boram, April Camlin, Roxana Alger Geffen, Luke Ikard, LoVid and Rives Wiley.

Curated by Melissa Webb
Test Pattern demonstrates a collective longing for reconnection with the simplicity of the analog era, while examining the psychology of our multi-generational society post Digital Revolution. Alternating between the material and the virtual, these artists layer analog and digital technologies through the use of video and sound, textile, painting, sculpture, and live performance. Throughout their processes of making they convert voltage into data, synthesized and percussive sound into imagery, and computerized experiences into physical objects. The resulting works explore social conventions and family life in the Information Age, the handmade vs the digitally rendered, the preservation and degradation of information, and ultimately, the relationship between the simulated and the tangible.
