This page features links to the latest versions of artworks-in-progress by Clive Holden.
Link to video-in-progress: I Thought I’d Escaped the 20th Century (August 1, 2017). Link is to a ten minute detail from a 500 minute video loop.
Link to generative artwork-in-progress: TIME IS THE NEW LANDSCAPE (2017). Please give 5 to 10 minutes for this work to load into your browser cache – playback will ‘smooth out’ after that, to duplicate what is seen in offline exhibition. And view this work on a computer screen (not a phone, although some tablets may be suitable).

Production & Exhibition Notes:
- In exhibition, these works are displayed in large lightboxes, or sometimes as projections. A concurrent, smaller netart version of the work may also be exhibited in some cases.
- To see generative artworks as intended in exhibition mode: after clicking one of the above links, select View > Enter Full Screen (at the top of your browser).
- In exhibition, generative artworks run smoothly because the visual files are already loaded into the software’s memory. However, when viewing them this way, via the internet, these files might take time to fully load. The playback will ‘smooth out’ after some time (the length depends on your computer connection). An option is to open an artwork, go get a coffee, and return later.
- Generative artworks have been fully tested in the Chrome and Safari browsers (they may work well in many others too, but if you’re having problems, try viewing in Chrome and Safari).
- Note that a link to this page is included on the remainder of cliveholden.com in the empty white space found at the bottom of the site’s menu.
- Screen size: ideally, you’ll view this work on a larger (desktop) computer screen, but many laptop and iPad screens will also be large enough. It’s not currently designed for mobility platforms such as phones (if there’s a netart version of a work, that will be prepped for phone playback).
- Black background for projections: white is the common background when displaying on a lightbox (when applicable), however black background versions of some works are made to be used for projections (the black background registers as ‘invisible’ when projected).
