Brighton Digital Festival and British Science Festival co-commission new work from Dominic Hawgood

Brighton Digital Festival and Brighton Science Festival announce a new co-commissioned art exhibition

The British Science Festival and Brighton Digital Festival have announced Royal College of Art graduate, Dominic Hawgood, as the selected artist chosen to create a new piece of work for exhibition at the University of Brighton, Edward St Campus.

The two leading festivals have partnered to co-commission the new digital artwork, which will be on display throughout the British Science Festival and Brighton Digital Festival (5 September to 13 October 2017). London-based Dominic Hawgood will work over the coming months to develop the installation, a digital reconstruction of a major solo exhibition that was recently, and unexpectedly cancelled.

The artwork will combine physical and virtual elements including animation, moving images, CGI, light installation, and sculpture, to create a realistic walkthrough virtual world. The installation will contemplate the shifting horizons of physical and virtual environments, question the role of the gallery, explore how light installation can be experienced in the virtual, and involve interactive elements.

Acoustic and interactive elements of this commission will be developed in collaboration with Gregory White, an artist and coder working at the intersection of art, music, and technology. Gregory was introduced to coding by building his own digital instruments and interactive performances, and his work looks at how code can be used as a creative tool using sound.

Dominic Hawgood says, “I've been pushing my practice towards simulation, exploring how environments can be constructed digitally, collaborating, and finding my own way into CG. The curatorial ideas BSF and BDF were discussing aligned closely with concerns of my own, so I'm excited to have the support to recognise a new work.”

Ivvet Modinou, British Science Festival Director, says, “We’re delighted to be working with Brighton Digital Festival to bring this ambitious new installation to Brighton. Dominic’s proposed artwork, exploring themes of perception and place using the latest imaging techniques, is an exciting addition to the British Science Festival programme.”

Laurence Hill, Brighton Digital Festival Director, says, “This project is an exciting one for us, representing both a new partnership and the chance to support a rising star of the digital art world in the creation of a new piece of work.”

WHEN & WHERE
5 September- 13 October 2017.
