25 April - 21 June 2015, Open Friday to Sunday 11-5pm
The interface is the boundary across which information is exchanged, causing a transformation in one or both sides of that boundary. The artists in this exhibition, critical practitioners in art and technology, lift the veil on contemporary interfaces; setting out alternative routes, aesthetic visions and disruptive behaviours.
The exhibition introduces a new work and slit-scanner hack workshops by Nathaniel Stern to be created as part of a residency.
Come along to Furtherfield Commons and join us on a Data Walk of Finsbury Park, re-create scenes of data exchange in LEGO, or create an interactive poster to take away with you at the end of the day. Or, you can simply pop in and join us for a cup of tea and chat. We’d love to see you!
Inspired by the Phillip K Dick short story “The Electric Ant” this year's CLICK seminar curated with Furtherfield explores how identity and perceptions of reality have changed in a world where humans, society and technology have merged in unexpected ways. Who are we, what's real, where can we expect to go from here, and how can we get there together?
Explore and discuss the data surveillance processes at play in Finsbury Park through a process of rapid group ethnography. Arrive from 5.30pm at Furtherfield Commons (map link) the community lab space in Finsbury Park for a short introduction to the project. We will leave at 6pm for a 90 minute walk around the area followed by food and discussion.
