Inspired by the way sci-fi creates fictional universes, artist Sophie Rogers uses digital software to create navigable simulations of imagined places and scenes. In August 2019 she undertook a residency with Mansions of the Future, resulting in a digital commission to coincide with Frequency Festival. This new online commission combines simulations of alternate realities with research into Donna Harraway’s writing on how the human and non-human are inextricably interlinked.
Launching online on 24 October 2019.
Sophie Rogers is a visual artist whose practice focuses on the act of word-building within virtual and manufactured spaces. Looking at sci-fi, fantasy and games, she builds brightly coloured landscapes that explore promises of imagined realities.
Rogers is based in London and has exhibited at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Barbican Centre, Tate Modern as part of Offprint London with Self Publish Be Happy and again with Future Late.
