Humber Street Gallery is proud to present Measures of Life by The Lumen Prize for Digital Art, celebrating some of the most extraordinary and innovative art being created with technology.
The artists exhibiting will explore a range of important questions about our ever-changing and increasingly dependent relationship with technology.
Using a variety of media, the artists invite audiences to reflect on their own reality and think about how new advances in technology might affect our daily lives. Interactive machines and augmented realities will take over the gallery spaces to highlight pertinent themes of how technology might simultaneously govern us, whilst also offering new possibilities and freedom.
All of the participating artists are winners or finalists of the Lumen Prize for Digital Art, a UK-based award that runs a global juried competition as well as exhibitions and events around the world. They are ::vtol:: (RU), Rachel Ara (UK), Stanza (UK), Molly Soda (US) Nicole Ruggiero (US), Refrakt (DE), Carla Gannis (US) and Anna Ridler (UK).
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.
