Curated by Jo McLaughlin
Katie Hallam is a visual artist based in Perth, Scotland. Primarily working in digital photography and print, she has recently moved into creating sculptural works exploring her key interests in the physicality of ancient geology and the dematerialised aesthetics of contemporary technology. This allegory is shown in motifs of geology representing ‘ancient power', with the digital age represented with an electrifying palette; neon greens, lava orange and ultraviolets.
Katie considers the traces our digital culture will leave on the earth, evolving and morphing materials transformed into fossilised objects to be found by future archaeologists. These digital-mineral hybrid and hypnotic works sit against a background of open, natural and urban landscapes that tease the question of future glitches in nature and calls into question the sustainability of the contemporary world's technological fixations.
