The Human Face of Cryptoeconomies steps beyond dry, incomprehensible analysis of finance structures and data control to present artworks that reveal how we might produce, exchange and value things differently together in the age of the blockchain.
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.
This Symposium aims to bring together a range of practitioners from the Performing Arts and theorists, including those involved with, but not limited to, dance, music, opera, theatre, magic, puppetry, and the circus. To discuss issues and opportunities in designing digital tools for communication, artistic collaboration, sharing and co-creation between artists, and between artists and actively involved creative audiences.
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?
Join The Bad Vibes Club (Sam Mercer and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau) for an afternoon of presentations, discussions and films about interruption and its relationship to art practice and contemporary culture.
