Imaginary Cities

Fantastical cityscapes created by artist in residence Michael Takeo Magruder. Traditional materials combine with cutting–edge digital technologies to remix images and live data from the British Library’s collection of urban maps into fictional cityscapes. Explore pieces combining algorithmically generated imagery and virtual environments with precious metal gilding and historical woodworking techniques.

Presented by the British Library
