PEREGRINATIONS & MIRROR OF INFINITY 3.0


Dates:
Thu Mar 04, 2010 00:00 - Sun Feb 28, 2010

The perception of landscape and sense of place or location has, in the last decade, undergone many changes.

It is now possible to visit the Mongolian village, to look at its terrain, its panoramas and communicate with local people in real time while being on a train from Lyon to London. It is now possible to browse others people snapshots of places and explore the world through their eyes. Platforms such as Google Earth, Flickr, Facebook or instant communication messaging systems altered our global awareness - boundaries between geographical, personal and temporal zones are blurred.

Three different spaces, two exhibitions and one artist . . .

Combining traditional forms and computational media, London based artist Kasia Molga attempts to address some of these issues by using art to metaphorically and literally engage viewers in a dialogue with hyperlinked landscapes. Using a newly conceptualized public library space - the Idea Stores of Tower Hamlets borough in London - she exhibits both a selection of web linked landscapes using traditional materials and exhibits a digital interactive installation, “Mirror of Infinity 3.0” which can be viewed and experienced in two places at the same time and participate in collaborative "online" creation

Kasia Mogla gained a Masters in Interdisciplinary Design from Central Saint Martins, London, in 2005. Exhibitions include: the ICA (London), BBC Short Film Festival (London), “Design Cities” Design Mai Festival (Berlin), “Biennale of Contemporary Arts” in Contemporary Arts Space Osaka (Japan), “Inside Out” OXO Tower (London), “B.tween08” Manchester Museum of Science, ”Mobilefest festival” Sao Paolo Museum of Sound and Vision.

Molga is a senior lecturer in Limkokwing University of Creative Technology and a PhD candidate at University of East London.
