Mark Lyken is creating a new body of work; a series of original paintings, a mural and a piece of music that he describes as “Abstract Mediations on the Digital World” during a residency with us this month. His first solo show will be called “The Loneliness Machines”, it explores his own and other’s feelings on our growing reliance and usage of social media websites and the impact on our “real” relationships. You can visit the gallery and see him at work throughout the residency (he finishes on the 5th Feb, so get your skates on) and you can take part by loading up your thoughts on the theme here. The exhibition opens 7-10pm on the 10th February and runs till the 4th of March. Here's the event page on Facebook and you can see his previous work here.
