What are the Distinguishing Qualities of Art in the Digital Age?

Grant Legassick is a South African / British artist whose work is fundamentally linked with technology. Working across moving images, networks, data, and new media, Legassick explores a world of accelerating technology, inquiring into not only the way in which we live,  interact, and think, but also into the ways in which we make art.  His current practice is influenced by our algorithmic culture, the networked environment, social media, and digital society.

Grant earned a MA Contemporary Art and Philosophies from Central Saint Martins, London.
