Digital Revolution, an immersive exhibition exploring the history of technology in the arts, opened earlier this month at the Barbican Centre and has unsurprisingly been an incredibly popular hit, giving us a glimpse of what our digital future might look like. The genre-spanning exhibition brings together film-makers, games developers, architects, artists and designers to create a exciting and comprehensive show of digital creativity. Highlights include Sound & Vision which explores how technology has changed the way we experience music (featuring a giant animated head!) and State of Play which allows visitors to interact with digital shadows using their body. Retro gamers will also find lots here to get excited about with Digital Archaeology tracing the development and evolution of video games from the humble beginnings of Pac-Man and Space Invaders. The exhibition also features work from the creative talent behind the visual effects for blockbuster hits Inception and Gravity.

Digital Revolution is running until the 14th of September so there’s still plenty of time left this summer to get yourself down to the Barbican Centre to experience a taste of what the digital future has in store.
