Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects. In their first London exhibition, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and presented in partnership with Furtherfield, the artists explore how the ideology of progress is imprinted onto historic landscapes and reflect on the two poles of the social experience of technology - use and obsolescence.
6PM YLT is a networked, distributed, one night contemporary art event, which takes place simultaneously in different locations, coordinated from one central venue, and documented online via a web application.
Furtherfield is hosting the first UK event, chosen for its history of critical engagement with networked culture.
Come to our UK hub warm-up meeting at Furtherfield to propose books/manuals projects, to encourage others to propose book/manual projects and also to invite publishers, or people interested in publishing. The afternoon is convened by Larisa Blazic, Mick Fuzz and Rachel Baker.
Sundays 2PM: 2 Mar, 6 Apr, 4 May, 1 Jun, 3 Aug 2014

My Voice Means is a workshop that gives participants an opportunity to listen mindfully to the sound of their own voice, to discover the many layers of its meaning, and to discover how this process can be expanded by means of technology.
'RE / PRE / SENT / PAST' features works by media artist Markus Soukup that explore different phenomena from dreamscapes to long distance travel recordings, as well as attempted considerations of societal change in relation to technological developments.
