xpace: External Space: The Emotional Problems of Living by Tobias Williams

The Emotional Problems of Living by Tobias Williams; xpace:External Space until May 11/15


The Emotional Problems of Living is a 3D animation created by Toronto based artist Tobias Williams for the 2014 Round Table Residency located at the Academy of Dragons.

By referencing models of digital representation and of human perception, the work examines the relationships and boundaries between reality and synthesis. There are multiple references to the RGB colour space, which is a synthetic model to describe components of human vision. Perception of the work itself,  hovers between the real versus computer-rendered model.  The video raises existential questions on the human experience, and the creation of reality as a collective construct.

On until May 10th at xpace: External Space located in the Learning Zone or access online here.
