jamestaylorgallery.co.uk/exhibitions/2009/03/passing-thro...

The James Taylor Gallery is pleased to present Passing Through, a group exhibition featuring the work of sixteen emerging artists and collaborators, creating works of art which are interactive, responsive, user aware and audience led.

This exhibition presented by TINT, an emerging arts initiative, providing a platform for open discourse and experimentation, aimed at breaking down preconceptions of interactivity and its relevance in contemporary art.

'Passing Through' explores the movement of the spectator turned interactor on a personal journey, engaging in direct conversation with the artworks in order to realise and complete the work that would not exist without his/her actions.
"By putting the user into the controls interactive technology could be claimed to have a strong liberating potential, as well, making it an effective means to analyze and deconstruct preexisting ideological formations." Erkki Huhtamo
