And Fingers May Creep

Benedict Drew works in various mediums, including music, sculpture, and video. Ironically, although he uses technology to create his art, Drew's current exhibition at Matt's Gallery is criticising that very same thing. Or maybe he is criticising us, and how dependent we have become on it.

Heads May Roll features a large scale installation that 'scrutinises the effect and intent of mediated images, synthesised voice and the fractured narrative of instructional speech.' Drew highlights the absurd amount of time we spend in front of LCD screens (such as the one I'm using to write this article, and the one your using to read it). He considers these screens a 'sci-fi' stage that projects alternative landscapes and sounds to the real world. Entering this virtual reality to such an excessive extent has caused social anxiety in our lives. We are saturated by LCD technology and electronic sound, which leaves us mentally exhausted.

Drew's exhibit is free to view until the 20th April.
