In August 2019 artist Sophie Rogers was invited to undertake a short summer residency with Mansions of the Future, resulting in a new digital animation entitled ‘A Confused Mass’. Which to coincide with Frequency Festival 2019 featured across our website and on social media.
Rogers has been researching the concept of ‘worlding’. Sophie uses digital software including Cinema 4D to create navigable simulations of imagined places and scenes often inspired by world-building practices found in sci-fi. Her latest work for Mansions of the Future combines simulations of alternate realities with research into Donna Harraway’s writing on the Chthulucene.
The video features a new supporting sound composition by Poppy Moroney and can be viewed in full here:
Rogers is based in London and has exhibited at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Barbican Centre, Tate Modern as part of Offprint London with Self Publish Be Happy and again with Future Late; the opening of the Switch House. She was selected to participate in Masterclass 2017 hosted by the Zabludowicz Collection.
