Digital Artist Residency and OVADA present a showcase of the UK’s best new, emerging artistic talent. Artists Abigail Fletcher-Drye, Will Kendrick, Aaron McCarthy, Jules Varnedoe explore a variety of digital processes and examine themes encountered by post-digital culture.

The four artists were chosen to be Digital Artist Residency’s Emerging Artists-in-Residence between May and June, producing work which examines the borderlines between emergent, digital technology and physical production. The exhibition responds to the interaction and the understanding of a digital ontology which sees the artist working towards a physical manifestation of their digital works. “Touching, not touching” is a phrase from Abigail Fletcher-Drye’s time in residence. It captures an essence of disparity inherent within digital works becoming solid.

Digital Artist Residency provides an online space on digitalartistresidency.org for artists to develop works, ideas and practices. The EAiR were in residency at DAR between May and June, working towards a physical manifestation of digital works. OVADA is an artist-led, contemporary art gallery and visual art development space in Oxford providing unique opportunities for both artists and audiences.
