Digital Revolution is the most comprehensive presentation of digital creativity ever to be staged in the UK.

This immersive and interactive exhibition brings together for the first time a range of artists, filmmakers, architects, designers, musicians and game developers, pushing the boundaries of their fields using digital media. It also looks at the dynamic developments in the areas of creative coding and DIY culture and the exciting creative possibilities offered by augmented reality, artificial intelligence, wearable technologies and 3-D printing.

The exhibition includes new commissions from artists Umbrellium (Usman Haque and Nitipak 'Dot' Samsen) and Universal Everything; global music artist and entrepreneur will.i.am and artist Yuri Suzuki as well as DevArt, a major new collaboration with Google exploring creative coding. The show also features work by Oscar-winning VFX Supervisor Paul Franklin and his team at Double Negative for Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking film Inception as well as Framestore's innovative visual effects behind Gravity. Artists and performers include Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Chris Milk, Aaron Koblin, Amon Tobin and Philip Glass; and game developers including Harmonix Music Systems (Dance Central).
