Upstream Gallery presents Shifting Optics, a signalling group exhibition showing the work of a new generation of artists, for whom it is natural to experiment with digital techniques. This results in works that hover between the analogue and the digital.
For Shifting Optics Upstream Gallery has selected seven artists who all explore the relationship between the digital and the analogue. While they eagerly embrace the omnipresent digital imagery, their work exists not only in virtual reality: these artists continue to investigate the urgency of producing physical objects. The final works of art, from paintings to apps and everything in between, are characterized by a hybrid nature.
