Jerwood FVU

Screening: Neither One Thing or Another

27 March 2017
CCA, Glasgow

Two new commissions by the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017 winners, Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek, will tour at a series of screening events nationwide, beginning 27 March at CCA, Glasgow.

These ambitious works employ pioneering, conceptually fitting technologies to examine the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial. In Geomancer, Lek harnesses his trademark - the building blocks of computer gaming technology - to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. Hough’s work And If In A Thousand Years takes us to the Californian desert, where the landscape was filmed and digitally scanned using LiDAR, to host a Hollywood-inspired merging of authenticity and replica. Both films delve between definitions of consciousness, and in the process invite us to look again at what we think we know and see.
