In the final exhibition of our 2017 Digital Gene Pool online exhibition series, we invited the subversive talent PILproject (Post-Internet Landscapes) to work within the actual content of our website.

For the duration of their exhibition, The One – The Many, PILproject have embedded portals across our website: and by exploiting the aesthetics of the familiarly ominous medium – the pop up window, telling a rich account of the historical diversity, World War legacy, local industries and maritime traditions of our home town Barrow-in-Furness.

The page gives static information about the PILprojects digital exhibition with us.  Explore Art Gene’s website for portals to The One, The Many digital installation (November 21 – February 1st, 2018),  (depending on your system and system preferences, you may need to deactivate your Popup Blocker to experience the artwork as intended).
