About the exhibition: "The skin" by Alison Bennett,  Oct. 16 - Nov. 16 2014.

Alison Bennett is an artist working in photography and digital media
currently completing a ‘creative practice as research’ PhD project at
Deakin University. Her research is framed by a question about the
reconstitution of photographic surface within digital media.
The 'skin' of the Widget Art Gallery gave Bennett the opportunity to
continue her investigation of surface in digital images in a new way.
The photographic image has shifted from a literal surface – a print – to an
interconnected ephemeral surface, a skin-scape: the WAG; reconstituted via
screens and code. Bennett was working with detailed images of human skin as
a metaphor for surface transformed into an effort to 'see under the hood',
to gain insight into how 'surface' operates within digital media.

About the WAG:

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on
2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into
people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG
hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific
context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary
exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an
online archive that creates a permanent collection.
