“For the last few years my work has responded to London’s continually changing urban terrain, but Brighton and many other global cities are undergoing the same transformations. My works challenge the rendered space of architectural luxury-living projections and I use new photography technologies to allow CGI images to enter into the physical space. My photo-sculptural works are warped and distorted, adopting the properties of the degraded simulated image.” Felicity Hammond
Hammond’s exhibition at Brighton’s HOUSE festival, runs from 30 April to 29 May 2016. The artist will be in conversation with HOUSE Curator Celia Davies to discuss her new work entitled, Show Room: The Language of Living.

Can culture contaminate an area?
Why is the colour blue so paradoxical?
How do looming digital technologies which seemingly engulf obsolete industries, influence your practice?
Is there chaos in urban life?
