In a world where digital images are becoming ever more prevalent, tweaked and twisted until the picture serves the purpose we need it to, a new exhibition in Sunderland is filled with fresh works which centre on internal errors, manipulation, accidents and other fascinating ways of creating things of substance. It’s all on show at Arts Centre Washington as 3D GLItCH runs from Saturday 17th September to Saturday 12th November.
Working with the University of Sunderland Glass and Ceramics Department, and space/social space research group of artists, the pieces have been conceived by artists around the world, though all of the artwork has been made in the city using 3D printers and photographic printers. The artists include Eric Bainbridge, Darren Banks, Sophie Beresford, Michael Branthwaite, Ruth Brewis and a litany of others, and they’ve all really excelled in utilising all the modern world has to offer in creating some breathtaking images.
