This December, TROVE presents Bristol based art collective, MadeScapes^.
Proxy is an exhibition that showcases MadeScapes^ practice for presenting brightly illuminated collaborative installations. They combine traditional materials with the inspiration they take from growing up during the mass use and production of digital culture. These are then constructed into isolated sequences of objects, colour and light.
Proxy highlights a fragmentation that appears as a result of twenty-first century narratives as we - the first generation of digital natives - come of age. We construct this exhibitions story, around and through its interactions with the screens and surfaces of mass culture. We depict each structure as pixels and combine them to create the whole. Relics and ideas from the past, present and future are combined and looped, and we navigate our way around them.
MadeScapes^ are made up of Jack Addis, Alex Cotterell, Tom Johnson, Will Kendrick, Trevor Smith and Lewk Wilmshirst.
