digital wave


The work was commissioned by Gestetner to launch an initiative to highlight the use of digital technology in creative practice and its impact on society.

Julie, Stewart and Jons concept developed through exploration of the processes and transformations within existing & future technologies, and biological systems, combined with ongoing research into human-computer interaction.

It is an interactive digital artwork, a look into spatial movement and energy flow. The work provides the framework for a journey to be undertaken by the viewer – digitally and physically. It is a hands-on work that encourages interaction via touch and sound, it is spatially dominant (over three metres high and 14 metres long) and denies dismissal.
