ALEXANDER MACKINNON

Alexander MacKinnon is a London-based artist creating simulated 3D spaces and experimental video games. Within these worlds, his practice borrows tropes and motifs from video game culture to explore questions around existence in virtual space, and present dystopic parallels to our own technology.

Recently he has been producing a series of works which explore the paradox of networked loneliness, building game worlds which represent the non-places of technocapitalist networked space. This includes his recent project Cumbernauld eSports Centre, created during a residency with arebyte gallery (2021).
