This solo exhibition, the first for Weston Thomson, features a collection of objects and images resulting from the ethnographic study of an imagined future society. Inspired by ancient artifacts and armed with state-of-the-art technology, the artist is creating pieces that will feel purposeful and precious – if only in their tangibility – to our advancing global village. "The use of modern tools to create work inspired by our ancestry produces a compelling friction between two points in time," said artist Weston Thomson. Many of the artifacts on display were created with the use of 3-D printers and laser cutters, and range in material from wood to steel and sandstone. Also included in the show are a series of painted illustrations that attempt to depict the process of imagining the fictional society from which the artifacts emerged. This exhibition was made possible through a kickstarter campaign.
