M C Escher’s illustrations were a reflection of his inventive inner world, where mathematical playfulness met illusory, almost psychedelic landscape. Creating spatial impossibilities and alternative perspectives on reality. What would he have done with today’s technology?
Using the architecture of the Barbican as a starting point, 'Behind a Facade of Order' constructs a complex digital world of feedback loops and visual paradox. As the movement of passers-by feeds the program, the constantly-evolving imagery blurs reality and virtual space. Where does the artist stop and the machine begin?
