CURRENT Interactive Digital Art Exhibition

Sian Fan, local interdisciplinary artist will launch her digital waterways artwork, Current.

Current Interactive Digital Art Exhibition

Working with community groups and a range of technologies, Sian has created an interactive website that digitises key sites along Chelmsford's rivers, forming an immersive and creative digital archive. Commissioned by Essex Cultural Diversity Project and Chelmsford City Council as part of Essex 2020, this exciting new project brings a whole new perspective to Chelmsford’s waterways. The exhibition includes underwater footage, Lidar scans, 3D photogrammetric scans of objects and plants and sound recordings of the river’s ambience.. In the exhibition, you can virtually walk through the environment, experiencing layers and perspectives from the river, previously unseen.

Sian has exhibited internationally with venues including Tate Modern, British Council, and the ICA, as well as producing work with Channel 4, the BBC and Google, and was recently longlisted for the Lumen Prize. The Lumen Prize is an international award which celebrates art created with technology, especially digital art.

We are excited to unveil Sian's creative response to Chelmsford's waterways. Sian will be available at the exhibition on Sunday 1st August to meet visitors and show previews of her website before it goes live on August 2nd.

Booking and tickets are NOT required, this is a free and open event.
