Opening Reception for Eruptions Of The Digital Into The Physical

Join us for the opening reception for the exhibition, Eruptions Of The Digital Into The Physical, happening during a special Prints and Multiples Fair edition of the monthly Alloverstreet Art walk! More info below.


Eruptions Of The Digital Into The Physical

This exhibition has been developed alongside a larger exhibition entitled Just Press Print which has been curated by UWE Lecturer / Researcher Dr. Paul Laidler. The Just Press Print exhibition presents a number of artists and designers that have worked collaboratively with Paul Laidler through his print publishing work at The print publishing and exhibition work both comment upon the influence of digital technology within the discipline of printmaking and the field of graphic arts. Just Press Print was exhibited at MICA from December 2015 to March 2016 and will continue to travel in the USA between 2016 – 2017.


To create this exhibit, students from both the University of the West England, Bristol UK and Maryland Institute College of Art were asked to explore the development of today’s technologically informed scene as a maker of physical artworks, and respond to one of the following quotes / ruminations (that are central to all the artists works in the Just Press Print exhibition) by the American author and futurist Bruce Sterling -  ‘Looking through the eyes of machines as humans’ and ‘Eruptions of the digital into the physical’. The goal of this endeavor is simple, to create work that engages the public with the possibilities of print in the digital age. 


Participating artists include: Kaitlin Beebe, Amelia Bombace, Evan Christopherson, Kaitlyn Conte , M. McCallum Dickens, Jackson Farley, Alexandra Harmel, Alexandria Henry, Dasom Kim, Ema Koch, Dan Langston, Aida Ramirez, Amber Rhein, Isabel Rosen-Hamilton, Madison Scillian, Morgan Strahorn, Jamie Burns, Ruth Irvine, Evangelina Papadopoulos, Eleanor Elliot-Rathbone, Matilda Scott, Olivia Beckett, Tom Handy, Jono Kamester, Steve McCarthy, Willem Purdy, Stuart Cannell, Nick Greenglass, Judy Lau, Jono Sandilands and Stephanie Turnbull
