The site-specific installation features a “decaying cryogenic freezing company where people sit dead on ice, hoping to be woken in the future.” Using audio, computer graphics and sculpture, the sci-fi scenario exists in both dystopia and fantasy, where technology offers up alternative solutions to life. Through the aesthetics of fan culture and nerd enthusiasm, the London-based artist explores a “faithful devotion to technology.”
Founded in 2005, The Residence Gallery features both represented and emerging artists, and is run by Ingrid Eva Lee Welsh.
