Wysing Arts Centre, The Mechatronic Library, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) and QUAD are pleased to announce a new co-commissioned work by artist Anna Bunting-Branch.
As part of the joint project Worlds Among Us, eight artists who were interested in working with new digital technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Game-Engines were invited to take part in a three-day clinic at Wysing in December 2017. The artists were supported by experienced technologists Werkflow and curators from each of the co-commissioning partners, after which they were asked to work up a full proposal for a new commission.
In February 2018, the partners were pleased to select Anna Bunting-Branch to realise her commission with the ongoing support of The Mechatronic Library. The work will be shown at Wysing, FACT and QUAD between Autumn 2018 and Spring 2020 alongside a new limited edition made with digital manufacturing technology.
Worlds Among Us is a joint project launched in October 2017 which seeks to use new technologies to look again at the worlds we do not see. How can creating new worlds, virtual experiences and augmented perspectives help us see more of what already exists?
Worlds Among Us is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
