Those of you who enjoyed his ZEE exhibit at FACT will be pleased to hear that the artist behind the 'monster artwork' which finished its crazily successful run at the weekend, will be back in the UK for a brand new commission for Ironbridge Gorge Museums in Telford, Shropshire.

CORE is a brand new exciting new digital art installation created by the renowned Austrian artist Kurt Hentschl├Ąger behind ZEE, which explores the innovative use of new digital technologies. Located within a blacked-out Victorian Engine Shed this audiovisual artwork will focus upon 3-6 projections which will act as windows into a weightless world populated by groups of identical humanoid figures.

These clones interact both instinctually like a school of fish or a flock of birds and at other times they appear choreographed like ballet dancers or synchronised swimmers. The result will be a series of virtual 'aquariums' containing dynamic bodies in extreme motion whose movements are neither predictable nor repeated. We're already hooked!
