Will Hurt presents his first solo exhibition,Configurations, throughout QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces. Hurt works with computers to produce digital prints, generative animations and interactive software that draws on formal elements of architecture, the language of diagrams and the history of geometric abstraction with the aim of engaging viewers with the built environment.
For Configurations, Hurt has produced new site-specific work in his ongoing Automated Spatial Transformations series in which software reconfigures digital models of the physical space the work is shown in. Here a software artwork and digital prints reimagine the unique and characterful design that can be seen throughout QUAD’s Extra Gallery Spaces, translating, rotating and extruding QUAD’s architectural elements into new configurations.
Exhibited alongside Hurt’s new work produced for QUAD is Abstract Playground AP1, a screen-based interactive artwork designed alongside people with learning difficulties during a 5-week residency co-commissioned by D-LAB and LEVEL Centre.
