A revolutionary journey from the first personal computers and simple video games of the 1970s, into the future. Produced by the Barbican Centre, the exhibition features the original CuteCircuit’s iMiniSkirt worn by Katy Perry to perform Roar at the London iTunes Festival. The garment is interactive and displays animations, videos and tweets from visitors.
This immersive and interactive exhibition brings together for the first time a range of artists, filmmakers, architects, designers, musicians and game developers, all pushing the boundaries of their fields using digital media. It also looks at the dynamic developments in the areas of creative coding and DIY culture and the exciting creative possibilities offered by augmented reality, artificial intelligence, wearable technologies and 3-D printing.
With the help of technology, visitors became a part of the exhibition, where they can explore how art, music, film and video games have been inspired by, and continue to be developed by the use of, digital technology.
