Dystopian Life Drawing Night
Thu 8 December 2016, 18:30 – 22:00 GMT
The Nest Gallery presents the first of a series of dystopian-themed life drawing workshops, held at the Phoenix Hub, Pithay Studios.
‘Bomb The Robot Factory’ is an encompassing drawing event, with an element of theatre and performance. It has a variety of scenes, models, drawing stations and exercises that convey the mood and story.
An unsettling vision into a future robotics factory; blown apart by the opposition. The automations are hard to distinguish from the employees in the rubble of the dilapidated buildings.
The robot factory, funded by the Animacorp institute and ‘Papaya’ systems, was the target of the resistance group ‘Fox’; named in memory of the mammal whose extinction announcement triggered the first attacks from the uprising. ‘Fox’ claim to be from the impoverished fringes of the Supercity.
The Supercity centre is enclosed under glass, to avoid the fumes expelled from the ‘Papaya’ plants that make up the outskirts. Surrounding the outskirts is a concentrated mass of corrugated metal roofs, shacks assembled by the poor, dissipating into the desert.
Desperate to regain a sense of reality in a simulated society; the resistance started to fight the major establishments, using alliances on the inside.
Red for ‘Fox’, green for ‘Papaya’.
Come along, if you dare to witness and record, through the medium of art, this dark portrayal of the future…
It’s best to bring your own materials, though some are provided.
