Refik Anadol Discusses His Digital Dreamscapes at the NGV
Turkish-born, LA-based artist Refik Anadol is speaking at the NGV this week at In the Mind’s Eye, a night of high-concept digital exploration.
The media artist jumped into prominence with his 2018 work WDCH Dreams, a three-dimensional data sculpture projected onto Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. As well as captivating audiences with its immersive visuals, the public installation questioned the role of art and machine technology in a post-digital world. Anadol’s previous works such as Melting Memories (a mind-bending mix of data paintings, augmented-data sculptures and light projections) have also created an impact at the cross-section of art and social commentary.
Anadol will appear at the NGV to discuss his body of work, which looks at the rapidly evolving relationship between art, nature, perception and intelligent machining in a world where technology is already seamlessly integrated into our daily lives.
The event, part of the Telstra Creativity & Innovation series, will be Auslan interpreted and includes an opportunity to view Escher X Nendo | Between Two Worlds from 7.30pm to 9pm.
