Digital Arts Computing BSc’s degree students are presenting the exhibition Ephemerence from 5th to 8th May 2022. In a show that will occupy the hybrid space of evocative artistry and computational practice, students present their work spanning video, live performance, sculpture, sound and installation in the unusual and exciting set up on the banks of River Thames, the Bragehouse in the famous OXO tower.
Spiralling through past, present and future, Goldsmith BSc Digital Arts Computing aims to introduce an arborescent trail of work, casting the anxiety of proliferation made most palpable within the virtual into high relief.
Ephemerence scrapes the patina that collects upon the surfaces between, coagulating it into a reeling of artworks that explore the contradiction of permanent change. Digital spaces contribute to the present’s intensification and deterioration, where the hypnotic lure of potential has become the very essence of now.
Today we arrive at the CenterPoint of an elastic continuum of relations that stretch us between binaries ‘til discernment is worn thin. Our artists occupy this hybridity through interdisciplinary digital art practice.
With 29 artists from across different year groups within the Digital Art Computing degree, branching across video, live performance, sculpture and installation, Ephemerence simultaneously reacts to its fleeting presence inside the building that holds it to acknowledge multidimensionality of velocities.
Ephemerence runs from May 5 to 8.
