Iniva presents the first interactive digital exhibition

About

Liminal: A Question of Position is a new exhibition curated by Iniva and supported by the Department of Applied Social Sciences at London Metropolitan University that will transform Rivington Place, London into a contemporary urban playground. Examples include a memory game which will challenge even the sharpest minds, time and space defying technologies allowing people in London and Cambodia to simultaneously walk in each others footsteps, and a proximity detecting installation turning the gallery into an ‘eye' through which to view the city. For six weeks over 20 artists will come together to investigate what it means to live in a city - the urban hub where culture, society and beliefs collide. They will use digital media to explore our contemporary urban experience and question the way in which we position ourselves within the city— both physically and culturally. In many instances the traditional positions for the viewer or audience of the art installation are eroded as their very presence or participation directly contributes to how it is received, not just in that instance but also how the work continues to evolve over the course of the exhibition's duration. They are in effect quite literally experiencing and authoring the art work at the same time. Furthermore this can happen intentionally or involuntarily. This kind of interaction is not the sole preserve of digital media but it does afford the viewer the unique position of actively participating in the production of meaning that can be directly experienced and distributed.
