A hulking giant, set against blackness, walks confidently into the nothingness, his figure endlessly evolving between primitive and advanced materials in this evolving CGI artwork.
The Transfiguration’s abstracted figure appears in a succession of virtual “costumes” that explore a variety of shapes, forms, textures and material qualities – one moment it’s a suit of flames, the next concrete, and then a coat of crystalline formations, before it’s finally a colourful furry monster.

- ‘Artists love to portray technology as the villain, as a force for evil that makes short work of our humanity… Matt Pyke isn’t one of them. The artist — who, it should be noted, works out of a log cabin in Sheffield, England — is an unabashed techno-optimist.’ – Suzanne LaBarre, Fast Company
