Inspired by the dystopian world of iconic twentieth-century novel Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban, ‘Oh What We Ben!’ will see digital artist and videosmith Sam Meech reimagine a small corner of West Cumbria as a haunting, post-apocalyptic world of science fiction fantasy.
Through haunting live performance, phosphorescent concrete forms, and interactive projection mapping, this specially commissioned show for Lost Stations will use language, excavation to envisage a future from the present day, unearthing the traces of relics and railway networks we will leave behind.
Sam Meech is an artist and videosmith based in NW England, his practice combines digital image making, projection design, community engagement, and machine knitting. He will be creating a new exhibition for Cooke’s Studios, commissioned especially for Lost Stations.
More information will be added to this event soon. In the meantime, you can check out more of Sam’s work over on his website.
Preview Night: Thursday 23rd November.
Exhibition then Opens Mon-Sat until Friday 8th December.
