Haunted Machines will take you on a guided tour of the world of computer graphics and simulation exploring various alternative worlds found in video games, films and interactive environments as well as being introduced to artists who seek to unpick and reveal the way that computer simulated imagery shapes our world.
This event has been programmed as a response to Kara Chin’s new solo exhibition Show Real at Humber Street Gallery.
Haunted Machines is a global super brand, research and curatorial project from Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell initially exploring stories of myth, magic and monsters in technology and more recently the automated production and sharing of images. They organise events, festivals, panels and give talks around their interests and research.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
