Welcome to the cutting room floor. The works in this virtual exhibition are video clips, character sketches, sound and textural experiments that didn’t make the final cut from a range of new media projects — short films, animated series, immersive experiences, sound installations, sculptures, and more. These offcuts give us a deeper look into an artist’s iterative and editing process. Think of the four rooms you’re about to enter as the special extended edition of your most prized DVD where you’re able to explore the twists and turns an artist takes on the path to building a story and world.
Every year, Gray Area Festival presents an exhibition exploring critical issues of our time through artistic perspectives. For the first time ever, the Gray Area Festival Exhibition will be experienced online as we continue to reimagine our relationship with art in an increasingly digital world. Hosted in a networked virtual gallery on New Art City, the exhibition format explores new ways of experiencing art together in online spaces.
