New technology meets unmissable art in London

As part of our Life Meets Tech summer season, No Backups for 1909 Days (1st June-28th August) is a beautiful collection of previously unrealized works by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez - brought to life by 3D printing.

Performing a hard drive archeology, Plummer-Fernandez has found the remnants of works-in-progress, errors, cancelled shows and doodles of his finished works and brought them to life by embracing the new technology of 3D printing.

Colourful, fun and fascinating, as our art curator Rosie Glenn explains, “Since the ‘early’ stages of any process yield rather clunky results, a sort of digital primitivism is revealed, reflecting wider social challenges in grappling and adopting technology over the past five years.”

This exhibition is clearly visible from the surrounding walkways of Exchange House so please come and take a look as your explore Broadgate this summer.

If you’d like to gain special access to the interior space, viewings are available 10am-4pm weekdays. To ensure ease of access on arrival, please confirm your visit by email with our art curator, Rosie Glenn (rg@rosieglennfineart.co.uk).
