About this Event

Join visual artist Jess Johnson & video-maker and animator Simon Ward in conversation with curator and Dowse director Karl Chitham about their unique collaborative relationship and the process of developing their virtual reality exhibition, Terminus.

With their pioneering use of VR, artists Jess Johnson and Simon Ward hold a unique position amongst contemporary art practitioners. Johnson’s drawings are transformed from analogue into digital, and from solo practice into cross disciplinary collaboration, forming the basis of this virtual experience. Animated by Ward and enriched with input from developer Kenny Smith and sound composer Andrew Clarke, the result is Terminus: a mysterious universe of alien architecture populated by humanoid clones and cryptic symbols, explored via a network of travellators and gateways.

Exhibition runs until 21 March 2021.
