Ian Cheng: EMISSARY FORKS featuring THOUSAND ISLANDS
Espace Louis Vuitton München, München
April 21 – September 9, 2017

EMISSARY FORKS featuring THOUSAND ISLANDS is the first monographic exhibition in an institution in Germany by Ian Cheng. Conceived in the framework of the 'Hors-les-murs' program of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, it commemorates Cheng's progressive practice in new digital art and honours his receipt of the 2017 ""Award for the Filmic Oeuvre"", presented by Louis Vuitton in association with KINO DER KUNST.

Drawing on the principles of video game design, cognitive science and improvisation, Cheng develops 'live simulations' – living virtual ecosystems that begin with basic programmed properties, but are left to self-evolve without authorial intent or prescribed endings. The works model the dynamics of imaginative organisms and objects, but with the unforgiving causality found in nature itself.
