On Friday 16th June we’re launching an exciting new exhibition specially-commissioned for our TIDAL digital arts programme, designed to explore Barrow’s coastal environment & proximity to the urban town centre. TROUBLED WATERS is the brand new work commissioned, created by award-winning Danish artist Stine Deja.

Featuring 3D image-rendered artworks in a large-scale, digital, aquatic installation that reflects upon our human-water relationship, our possible evolution from beneath the waves, and the insatiable, ‘biological’ needs of AI.

Featured alongside Stine Deja is West Cumbrian artist Zoe Forster, who was selected for TIDAL’s third micro-commission with Looking Out, Looking In – an installation that explores the marriage between the natural world that makes up the coastline of Walney Island and the urbanised mainland of Barrow. Forster looks at how these two ideas connect or can be connected through found objects, repurposing of materials, storytelling and photography including temporarily turning a coastal World War II bunker into a giant pinhole camera. This micro-commission is part of the Cumbrian Artist Digital Development Lab within the TIDAL digital arts programme.
