Boxcopy

New Dawn explores the mysterious nature of reality in the objects and the mediatized spaces that surround us day-to-day; how do notions of the body, speed, excess, morality and even revolution translate from a purely technological and virtual gaming space into the real space of the audience? What do these translations mean when approaching ideas on constructed reality and the speed at which reality is accelerating beyond our control? How do we determine certainty or truth and remove doubt from the decisions we make about real–time and online experiential data now that our lives are more than ever entwined within virtual space? And what will the political, social and economic repercussions be for us as these new technological developments change the way we see our bodies and subjectivities?

Christopher Howlett graduated with a MFA from the Californian Institute of the Arts in 2000 with the support of an Anne & Gordon Samstag Scholarship and previously graduated with First Class Honours in a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Queensland University of Technology in 1996. His works have been exhibited internationally in festivals including the Inter-Society of Electronic Arts in Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm; Videoholica International Video Art Festival in Bulgaria; Los Angeles Freewaves Festival of Film, Video and New Media and at the Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena, California. His solo and collaborative works have also been exhibited locally at the Gallery of Modern Art, Institute of Modern Art, the QUT Art Museum and interstate at the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia, Hobart Art Gallery, Cairns Contemporary Art Space and Blindside Artist Run Space Inc. in Melbourne.
