Lawrence Lek: Geomancer

About Lawrence Lek: Geomancer

Using his characteristic style of computer ani-mation Leks recent works attempt to map the spirit of our rapidly dawning age - one whose characteristics, Lek implies, include the growing ascendancy of Sino-Futurism, the idea that China's technological development constitutes a new form of Artificial Intelligence.

This is a welcome return to Tramway by Lek, whose work featured in our Glasgow International group show in 2016.

Programme
Play Station (Farsight Corporate Trailer) 2017, HD video, sound, 5m 05s

Sinofuturism (1839 – 2046) 2017, HD video, sound, Extract 9m 42s

Geomancer, 2017, HD video, Stereo sound, 48min 51s

Geomancer was commissioned for the Jerwood/FVU Awards: Neither One Thing or Another, a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and FVU. FVU is supported by Arts Council England.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lawrence Lek: Geomancer are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
