Alt-w | Living Lithograph

Cycle 15 Alt-w Exhibition Award - Lindsey Carr

4th July to 2nd September 2023. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Originally developed as a tool for the creation of a series of lithographs based on Ernst Haeckel’s ‘Kunstformen Der Natur’ - the tool has now been reformatted for premiere at the Music Hall. Organisms on screen are generated by machine learning and animated using latent space interpolation to calculate the best trajectory between each.

Carr primarily works as an oil painter and print maker, conducting programmatic experiments using data collected from historical art which are then used as references. Her work is focused on exploring the interplay of rules - how one set of rules interacts with another, how complex behaviour arises from simple directives, and how art emerges.

Co-commissioned by Aberdeen Performing Arts and New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
