Encompassing fields like film and architecture as well as gaming and music the art is a comprehensive look at digital creativity. With new works by big artists like Umbrellium (Usman Haque and Nitipak ‘Dot’ Samsen), global music artist and entrepreneur will.i.am and Oscar-winning VFX Supervisors: Paul Franklin and his team at Double Negative you can really see how digital artwork has found a place in the world.
You will be able to interact with a 3D laser light field, see what it’s like to own a pet robot snake and explore the latest in wearable technology. There will also be vintage music hardware and you can play classic video games or get hi-tech and make your own contribution to brand new digital art.
You can get tickets online as well as by phone or at the box office and the standard cost is £12.50 with concessions at £10.50. It is worth thinking ahead as a timed admission system is in place so make sure you have enough time to enjoy the exhibition properly.
If you are looking for a nearby eatery after you have finished at the exhibition a short stroll away is Leon at Ludgate Circus. This is a new type of restaurant that aims to serve up healthy and alternative fast food. If you can get a seat near the window and you can watch the world go by as you enjoy some tasty Mediterranean inspired food.
If you are feeling energetic it is about half an hour’s walk to the Barbican Centre from Generator London. Alternatively, at King’s Cross St. Pancras you can get either a Circle or Hammersmith & City or Metropolitan tube straight there and it takes less than 20 minutes.
