Quayola and Memo Akten through digital production outfit Nexus Interactive Arts, have created ‘Forms’, a multiscreen digital artwork commissioned by the National Media Museum for the exhibition In the Blink of an Eye: Media and Movement, which is part of the Cultural Olympiad programme. This generative animation and interactive installation will display at the Museum from 9 March – 2 September.
‘Forms’ is a highlight of the exhibition, which explores themes surrounding the capture and synthesis of movement. Quayola and Memo responded to this and the images and artefacts from the museum’s National Collections that feature within the exhibition. This includes the work of Dr Harold E. Edgerton, Roger Fenton, Tim Macmillan, Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge.
