The Nature Machine
Dec 2004 -
What happens when nature and technology come together? Do we create new worlds? How natural is our natural world? Equipped with the technology and the curiosity, contemporary artists explore how technology changes the world around us and our perceptions of it.
This exhibition is designed for children to engage with artists' ideas about the world we live in through a wide variety of works from the Gallery's contemporary collections, including photography, installation, video and paintings.
Children's labels, a children's activity booklet and interactive elements throughout the exhibit provide children with exciting and accessible ways to interact with the art works on display, and investigate some of the central themes of the exhibition.
