UNCOMMON NATURES

Group exhibition 
Phoenix Brighton Gallery
14 - 23 September 2018

I curated this exhibition in partnership with the Lumen Prize, the global digital art prize. The exhibition formed part of Brighton Digital Festival 2018 and took place at Phoenix Gallery. 


The work was drawn from entrants to the 2018 prize and featured a diverse programme of still image, 3D interactive installations, moving image, AR/VR and AI.

‘Uncommon Natures is about leaky boundaries, between the human and the non-human, between the digital and the analogue, between biology and binary. Uncommon Natures is what happens when computer drawing meets the physical limitations of paper and ink, when chimps use Nietzsche to lecture humans on their arrogance and when micro-organisms read, eat and tweet books.’ Laurence Hill
