New Findings is an exhibition of anaglyphic 3D artworks created by the Halifax based artists Paul Hammond and Seth Smith who work under the name of Yorodeo. The Anaglyphic 3D process utilizes red/blue glasses and has been used in comic books and movies, since the 1950s.
New Findings was originally started in 2009 and has developed into an ongoing series of anaglyphic 3D artworks. The exhibition presents viewers with an ever-expanding, fantastical universe that draws inspiration from science fiction, fantasy, children’s literature and dreams. The work fuses collaborative drawing, photography and digital collage to create glimpses of fictional lands and the characters that occupy them. The images consider how homes are made in even the most uninviting and often bizarre environments and how nature can reclaim previously inhabited spaces. It also presents viewers with fictional monuments, landmarks, and phenomena that might exist in these worlds. The exhibition includes new sculptural dioramas that incorporate 3D prints and video.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit the CBU Art Gallery website.
The CBU Art Gallery is located in CE266, off the Great Hall in the Student, Culture, and Heritage building.
Coming up next is Fixed Forever, a collection of photography pieces from our permanent collection.
July 15th – September 23rd 2016
