In First Contact at DOS.Exe work from Jacob Riddle’s ongoing body of work DPM∧GAN is exhibited in mysterious clearing found in the middle of a dark virtual forest. The work is lit by industrial lighting equipment as though an ominous discovery is being investigated by an unknown military.
DOS.Exe is an experimental art space founded, curated, modeled and designed by Kenny Myers, a deaf self taught multidisciplinary artist. DOS.Exe lives in a game engine where Kenny meticulously designs and creates a new exhibition space for each show. For First Contact Kenny created a space that not only aligns with but amplifies the conceptual and aesthetic focuses of Jacob’s DPM∧GAN. Like the work housed within, the space is a cryptic interplay between technology and nature that is both alien and familiar.
