Measures of Life

Humber Street Gallery, Hull, UK

21 July — 30 September 2018

Lumen Art Projects partnered with Humber St Gallery in Hull, UK, to present ‘Measures of Life’, an exhibition featuring six artists from the UK, Russia, US and Germany.

‘Measures of Life’ explored how time and space define how we perceive reality in our hyper-connected world. These new realities become malleable and flexible, offering more possibilities than ever before.

As we become more defined by the data we create, how does this affect our self-worth – or the way we look at each other? Can a relationship blossom in the midst of mass digital surveillance? Do we ever really die online? As our cities get smarter, what will they learn about our habits and what control can they passively exert over us? If we are collectively training the machines of the future through our actions, how will they react to what they see and hear?

The artists taking part in this exhibition tackled these questions through a variety of media, from robotics to augmented reality, giving shape to the diverse ways we can live with technology. Visitors were asked to interact with many of the artworks, as well as watch the works develop independently under their gaze.
