Metaverse Landscapes, Simon Denny’s most recent series of works—which Kunstverein Hannover is proud to present in a solo exhibition—offers a glimpse into a number of the rapidly-growing immersive virtual worlds enabled by block- chain technology. Denny looks at the mechanics and visual vernacular of “metaverse” spaces that offer users an array of inter- actions: from social networking via custom-made characters to the purchase and sale of collectibles and, ultimately, digital real estate.
Simon Denny (b. 1982, New Zealand) has paid close attention to the surfaces, screens, and interfaces that are thresholds to the digital products we use to organize the world around us. As floods of information and novel network structures claim to disrupt the hierarchies of old, Denny has looked at the promises, perils, and thought-provoking changes enabled by a shifting technological landscape.
