NCCA 2014

4up2smallA digital image is built via patterned repetition in a similar way to a woven mat or basket, where small increments are placed side by side by side in order to build the whole. It is in this way the artists see a parallel between one of the world’s most ancient techniques and the relatively new art of digital imagery.

The homonymous pixels+fibre exhibition creates an entirely immersive environment. With its focus on video art and sculptural weaving, this body of work embodies the concepts of natural and geometrical forms and patterns, revealing within the artworks glimpses of ancient wisdom and modern digital technology.

The show is the latest outcome of an extended twelve-month collaborative residency at the Fremantle Arts Centre and it run at the Nortern Centre for Contemporary Art in Darwin from March 21 to April 19, 2014.
