david don, the In-between

essay by graeme auchterlonie

david don’s practice investigates the intersections of contemporary art, identity, and the growing dominance of the virtual space. working across a range of media including animation, video installation and painting, his work predominantly represented through metaphor examines our relationships between virtual and real spaces. the resulting creative outcomes are realised through a body of work that responds to the universal interactions we may have with virtual space. the artworks function as snapshots of these interactions and are created using multiple mediums to explore how each new medium might offer a new perspective of this core concept.
