The show is a mix of real and virtual pieces, featuring previous projects made by Aitken alongside new digital renderings. Often, the exhibition blurs the lines between the two.
For example, a virtual courtyard shows a rotating, mirrored sculpture, while a nearby window looks onto a silver hot air balloon, in reference to Aitken’s nomadic New Horizon work, which also revolved around a hot air balloon.
To add to the experience, the digital sculpture ‘interacts’ with its environment using VR algorithms, reflecting the changing light conditions of the digital space. Other spaces are filled with lightboxes and word sculptures by Aitken, as well as fabric pieces created by the artist in the initial stages of lockdown.
Timed exhibition slots are available to book at each gallery.
