Will Hurt: Type

Will Hurt is known for playful interactive artworks and self-made software in which complex geometric worlds can be drawn, animated and explored. In this exhibition he considers the act of typing, our intimate physical interaction with computers, by seeing punctuation and letters as forms rather than politicised words.

Will is undertaking a residency at Broadway throughout this exhibition as part of his Near Now Fellowship. Drop by Broadway Gallery to discover new work-in-progress artworks, test prototypes and help shape the outcomes of Will's residency.

About the artist

Will Hurt is best known for his brightly coloured, playful, digital interactives which cater to people of all ages and abilities and respond to the geometry of the physical sites they are installed in, abstracting and re-presenting local architecture and landscape. These site-specific interactives bring people together, forging connections and affording them a moment to play, leaving them with lasting memories of novel playful experiences and a new appreciation of their locality. Recent work focuses on contemporary modes of drawing, writing software in which complex geometric worlds can be drawn, animated and explored. Will’s work has been exhibited around the world due to its stand-out aesthetic, technical resilience and engaging immediacy.

Through the Near Now Fellowship, Will aims to explore the creation of new digital tools and experiences to engage people in modes of creative play that are interactive, constructive and shareable.
