Digital Disruption

Mark Booth

8 Mar 2017 to 8 Apr 2017

In all these works camouflage relates to form transformation and illusions of materiality - they appear to be constructed from a base-material other than plastic. Some sculptures are wrapped in fabric. Pattern jumps off their surfaces, breaking up shape, rendering the base-structures unrecognisable. The guns re-appropriate children's toys. Combat designs transform them from harmless playthings into menacing weapons, reflecting on child desensitisation to violence. The panels use digital pixilation to render landscape.
