In his new one person exhibition at the EIKON Schauraum, Alan Butler explores the materiality of digital objects from simulated worlds through modes of traditional photography and lens based media. This examination is builds upon an existing body of work that combines photography and video games. The works features play with the different levels of image-making through moving image, sculpture, analogue photography and machine learning algorithms. Each of the works attempts to transpose the flatness of computer simulations into three dimensional art objects and the physical architecture of the gallery space.
A main feature in the latest issue EIKON #115 is dedicated to the artist.
In 2020 Alan Butler (born 1981 in Ireland) won the Q21 viennacontemporary Artist-in-Residence Prize in cooperation with EIKON and is Q21 Artist-in-Residence at MuseumsQuartier Wien in August and September 2021.
