FLIGHT INTO THE UNKNOWN

Presented by Metro Arts

By Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer

Flight Into The Unknown explores the connections between Western art history, imaging technologies and networked cultures.

Through the use of 3D imaging, drawing machines and AI networks, this exhibition questions how we understand historical genres of art and how they inform our contemporary view of the world.
