Make Believe

7th June – 31st August 2019

Gallery open Wednesday to Saturday 12 – 5pm

Our Summer exhibition Make Believe is is a playful, interactive space for all ages. Four international artists present colourful immersive experiences, that give us a glimpse into the creative mind of a machine!

The exhibition features work by Gene Kogan, Violet Forest, Will Pappenheimer and Sofia Crespo, who all use the latest technologies to create colourful experiences that delight and entertain.

  • Make 3D paintings in Virtual Reality, that hang in mid-air using Google’s Tilt Brush.
  • Watch Artificial Intelligence combine scenes from Alison in Wonderland with famous paintings.
  • Add your own doodle to a giant constellation of drawings, and help create a virtual sculpture that floats in space using Augmented Reality.
  • Control a computer-generated sensory scene with your fingertips.
  • Discover the creatures from a ‘neural zoo’, imagined by artificial intelligence. Make your own creature at our activity station!
