Primarily interested in exploring issues of self and online identi­ty, Digital Meze brings together the artwork of 11 artists from the MA Fine Art Digital at UAL. This independent exhibition sug­gests a variety of experimentations, explorations and approach­es proposing technology and the digital as their the main ingredients.
Digital Meze represents the wide and varied approach that artists take when engaging with contemporary digital culture. The resulting work ranges from explorations of identity, both on and offline and the chal­lenges involved when immersed in the rapidly evolving environment of social media and the wider Internet, through to investigations into the nature of human existence and even the creation of divine beings.
The exhibition enables the revealing of online identities which have been created as attempts at self-representation through the use of social networks and internet trends, often in an ef­fort to communicate and bridge the gap between location and time.
The wide variety of artistic practice throws up questions of wheth­er we could, or even should, attempt to excavate and preserve what is truly human but which often gets lost amidst the buzz­ing jungle of high technology and instant online communication.
