“Alpha AF” brings together new digital works by Shamus Clisset. Working with 3D modeling, rendering, and game-development software for over 15 years, Shamus generates visual and emotional friction through tropes of aggressive male identity rubbing up against its own mediocrity and failings. An absurd, self-conscious sense of humor and hyper-real (or hyper-fake) visuals combine into an epically high-res reflection on memes, alternate realities of video games and online identity, actual history, and a bleak future. But it’s fun!
Varying greatly in scale and format, the exhibition brings together 3D rendered digital prints, animations and self-generating, self-playing videos built with Unreal Engine. Some works are available as NFTs.
