PAD Gallery

Digital Aesthetic 2 included a solo exhibition of work by Manchester based artist Simon Blackmore.

Drawing from low-fi aesthetics and hobbyist woodworking and electronics, Blackmore creates work primarily in sound, using custom built technology.

Included in the show was a specially commissioned new work Journey across the surface of a CD, 2007 – which documents a number of fictional journeys that imagine how it may look and sound if the viewer was shrunk to the size of a needle tip and travelled across the surface of a commercial CD.
