The Island (2021)
‘The Island’ is Max’s first playable, 3D virtual world artwork. The interactive 3D environment takes the form of the exhibition itself, as the viewer navigates and explores a pastoral British idyll which has had its time and place disorientated, merging British World War Two propaganda with contemporary public health advertising and social media posts around the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit. The outcome is a strangely dissimilar land of visual and documented material collaged together that reflects upon Britain’s continual mediation of its Second World War crisis in its present day.
The work has been commissioned by Vitrine Gallery (London/ Basel) and will be exhibited online in June 2021.
