Alt-w: Blush Response
12th August - 5th December
The Alt-w:Blush exhibition was a partnership with New Media Scotland and included virtual reality, interactivity and animation.
As part of the Festival of Architecture 2016 the Alt-w Fund commissioned a series of new works for the Travelling Gallery by artists based in Scotland and working in digital media.
Artworks in the exhibition included intricately made paper models by Charles Young, virtual reality headsets exploring Brutalist Architecture by Dennis and Debbie Club, painting by Torsten Lauschmann collaborating with The Bothy Project and an interactive drawing following a map of the Crinan Canal by ~in the fields.
Each artwork had two elements: a smaller work which travelled in the gallery, and another work sited at a specific place in Scotland. The Travelling Gallery visited each site once during the tour, and when the two artworks met they 'blushed' in response to each other.
