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.
