Melanie Clemmons: Boreal Crush Pack

26 February27 February

Boreal Crush Pack

Opening on Sat feb 26th hr. 2 – 5pm

Also open on Sun feb 27th hr. 2 – 5pm

Gil Artist in Residence Melanie Clemmons exhibits the products of her stay.

Digital asset packs, a collection of digital files often organized around a theme, have spiked in popularity for use in video games like Fortnite and Roblox, as well as in social media and the (possibly) looming Metaverse. These ‘bundles’ or ‘packs’ contain 3D models, images, sounds and animations, among other file types. While in residency at the Gil society, Melanie Clemmons created an asset pack using photogrammetry and 3d scanning processes. Akureyri’s flora and landscapes serve as the raw material for Clemmons’ assets, however the resulting pieces are warped, contorted, crushed, and whorled, existing more as symbols of unreality than recognizable objects.

In the exhibition Boreal Crush Pack, viewers are invited to explore worlds Clemmons has created using her distorted asset pack. Works on display include interactive 3D animations, video art, and virtual and augmented reality.

All ages gleefully welcome.
