The Fading Afterglow of Creation

10 Apr - 8 May 2015
The Fading Afterglow of Creation brings together the work of Leicester-based artists Dave Briggs and Jack Squires, and explores the ways fact and fiction combine to shape how we see ourselves in an increasingly technology-driven world.

The exhibition – subtitled “The Loneliness of Machines Looking Out Across Infinity and Finding No-one to Re-Tweet Their Thoughts” – presents a collection of inventions inspired by obsolete visions of the future, alongside unearthed artefacts from a long-dead race who fell victim to their over-reliance on machines.

Both artists have been taking part in our Phoenix Interact Labs Bursary Scheme, designed to help artists use creative technology in their work.
