Artist Ann Lislegaard Makes Sci-fi Less Boring


What you’ll see here is a video of a video: a sort of outsider’s view of the installation at Murray Guy gallery by Ann Lislegaard, who has used CGI to animate science-fiction novels improving by light-years the ho-hum, non-animated sci-fi experience. A double screen shows, we are told, a modernist glass hotel slowly being invaded by a crystalline growth. The accompanying text reads: “What surprises me most, is the extent to which I have accepted the transformation; everywhere the process of crystallization is advancing.”
