Nostalgia for Obsolete Futures gives an insight into Marynowsky's remarkable artistic practice. It includes interactive robotics, sound sculpture, audiovisual installations and performances. It also reveals a surprising and dramatic new work that Marynowsky is developing at NGV Studio during the course of the exhibition.
Dr Wade Marynowsky is an anti-disciplinary artist who works across robotics, immersive and interactive installation, performance, music and video. His practice typically draws on technology and programmed structures to create works that straddle humour, high-camp and a host of unnerving thematic orientations to absorbing effect.
