Upstream Gallery presents Shifting Optics III, a new edition in a series of signaling group exhibitions where the impact of digital culture on the visual arts is shown.

In the first edition (2014), a new generation of artists was introduced. For this generation, grown up with computers, working in a hybrid method between analog and digital is completely obvious. In the second edition (2015) recent developments were placed in dialogue with works by pioneers such as Peter Struycken and JODI, who were using computers and the Internet already in their art in the twentieth century. 

The interface between art and computers is still relevant today and now its urgency is recognized by institutions and a wider audience. With Shifting Optics III Upstream Gallery continues it's research within this rapidly transforming field by bringing together eight artists who have embraced a digital working method. From different angles and in a variety of media, they reflect on the impact of computers on our collective consciousness.
