The Preserving Machine
Digital Artist Residency X Implied Gallery
4th Jan – 11th April 2021
The Preserving Machine is a virtual exhibition hosted by Digital Artist Residency and Implied Gallery. It features artists Anna Nazo, Ariel Caine, Agnes Mormirski, Lucas Gabellini-Fava, Peter Ainsworth, Richard Kolker, Sam Plagerson, Theo Ellison, Tom Milnes, Yarli Allison.
The Preserving Machine is an artist research collective concerned with emergent computational, 3D imagery through practice-based and theoretical research. The title comes from Philip. K. Dick’s homonymous 1953 short story in which the protagonist, Dr Labyrinth, attempts to create a machine to preserve the temporal and ephemeral objects of the world. The story inadvertently works as a fitting allegory for 3D image reproduction and representation, which is playfully explored by the 10 artists.
