Sebastian Buerkner at the Fabrica Gallery

OUR MACHINES II presents Sebastian Buerkner at the Fabrica Gallery
Sebastian Buerkner’s work pushes digital animation into new aesthetic territory, bringing together the narrative and visual traditions of cinema, painting and sculpture in highly original forms. His innovative stereoscopic works explore the otherwise unrealised potential of 3D cinematic technology.
Sebastian will perform a live soundtrack for this multi-projection installation, occupying the lofty surroundings of the former church, at the Fabrica Gallery in Brighton. The Tenants portrays a visually murky impression of the internal sprawl of life within a tower block. Several projections of animated vignettes combine into a single light sculpture. Through the use of multiple layers of projection surfaces, the emitted visuals attain a holographic volume.
