This September and October Phoenix Brighton is proud to present our flagship exhibition "Mutator 1 + 2: Evolutionary Art by William Latham". William Latham is a pioneering figure in computer art. The exhibition presents the full range of his output from his early drawings to his later digital and interactive artworks.
William Latham was one of the first UK artists in the 80’s to create computer art, and he rapidly gained an international reputation as a pioneer in the field. His work blends organic imagery and computer animation, using software modeled upon the processes of evolution. Starting with a simple shape, Latham introduces random ‘mutations’ of a form in order to generate increasingly complex three-dimensional creations that resemble fantastical, futuristic organisms. Mutator 1 + 2 is Latham’s first major exhibition in the UK in over twenty years, and includes his early hand-drawn work, large computer generated Cibachrome prints, video art and his most recent interactive projected imagery that explores and embodies evolutionary processes, physical and virtual space.
