Art, technology and the forest

Friday 1 Jun 2018

 
A new exhibition at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria has created a world where nature and the scientific meet, in Supernatural: Art, Technology and the Forest. Through photography, video and digital art, Supernatural explores how camera-based images shape our understanding of the forest.

β€œThe exhibition explores how artists working in the realm of photo and video art are showing us new ways to look at the forest, expanding our understanding of forest environments in surprising and significant ways,” says AGGV curator, Haema Sivanesan.

The artists – Ayumi Goto, Mike Andrew Mclean, Kelly Richardson, Carol Sawyer, Trudi Lynn Smith, Sandra Semchuk, Dan Siney, Leila Sujir, and Ian Wallace – use photography and film alongside computer generated imaging and 3-D technologies to pose the idea of a new approach to human relationships with trees.

Much of the work is inspired by locations across Vancouver Island, including Jordan River, Walbran forest and the shoreline along Dallas Road. The exhibition runs from 19 May until 3 September.
