Acclaimed digital art heads to Trinity Leeds shopping centre
Digital Zoo - Life from the World Wild Web brings digital art out of the gallery and into everyday places making it accessible to a wider public.
In partnership with producers The CultureCode Initiative and Land Securities, owners of Trinity Leeds, the interactive exhibition explores the way the Internet and social media have changed our culture.
Furtherfield is a UK organisation for arts which launched London’s first dedicated gallery for international, networked, new media art in 2014.
The tour is a first for digital art and the exhibition features works that have previously been exhibited at Furtherfield Gallery, based in North London.
Trinity Leeds will display six works featuring experimental software, videos, installations, workshops, networked and mobile media created by internationally recognised artists Andy Deck, Mary Flanagan, Genetic Moo, Liz Sterry, Thomson & Craighead and Transnational Temps.
The exhibition is accompanied by a series of creative workshops for children aged 6 to 11-years-old inspired by Crow_Sourcing.
Digital Zoo: Life from the World Wild Web runs from February 14 until Sun February 23 on the ground and first floors of Trinity Leeds shopping centre.
