Two new commissions by the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017 winners, Patrick Hough and Lawrence Lek are touring nationwide, coming to Arnolfini 8 June. The screening includes a Q&A by artist Lawrence Lek.

These ambitious works employ pioneering, conceptually fitting technologies to examine the steadily blurring line between the real and the artificial. In Geomancer, Lek harnesses his trademark - the building blocks of computer gaming technology - to set the stage for an awakening of artificial intelligence. Hough’s work And If In A Thousand Years takes us to the Californian desert, where the landscape was filmed and digitally scanned using LiDAR, to host a Hollywood-inspired merging of authenticity and replica. Both films delve between definitions of consciousness, and in the process invite us to look again at what we think we know and see.

The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella. FVU is supported by Arts Council England.
