The Artists

Exhibition Concept:

Hexagonally exhibition showcases six artists, each forming one side of this shape. The hexagon is found throughout nature, architecture and modern technology. It speaks of compact strength, unity and connection. Social distancing rules have meant that individuals stood equally apart, form a repeating hexagon. The hexagon brings together these artists under current global conditions and is a mark of resilience.

Drawing on natural and urbanised landscape influences, with a particular focus on highlighting untold or suppressed histories. Ian is a storyteller primarily working with text and sound, but also exploring how emergent digital technologies and media can enhance and re-vitalise the ways in which narratives can be conveyed, absorbed and propagated.

Sophi Gardner explores eco-digital art. She seeks to understand intrinsic and complex aspects of the nature-human : human-nature balance and to make reflections through new media ecologies.

She wonders what happens to our human psyche and physical being within this process. What do we feel when we connect to a living planet through new form, is our experience a hostile world about to end? Can we reorient our technologies to be respectful and work in harmony with our natural habitat. When we share sight do we create what we see together?
