Alluding to the birthing process, Hampden Gallery will feature new artists in their new Plexiglas enclosure located in the lobby. Continuing the project will be a series of works entitled The LayerCake Project. Start with an idea, and put it on the butcherblock. In the tradition of Exquisite Corpse poetry, The LayerCake Project redefines both chaos and collaboration. A single cake involves a circle of artists (4-6) who each create their own original piece of digital art. Each piece is then catapulted around this circle for the next artist to modify and pass on. In the end what emerges is a new digital organism, which, though unpredictable, shows a clear evolution. Paradoxically, the individual stylistic contributions of each artist are not lost, but accented.
