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.

The telluro-geo-psycho-modulator is the latest experiment in a series of playful explorations and elaborations of a general thesis extracted from Michael Persinger's work, that our brain states are modulated by the interference patterns created by our immersion in natural weak geomagnetic fields, and that such patterns cause the feeling of anomalous experiences including those of ghosts or god.

Is it really OK for corporations to compile and sell personal profiles so intimate that they know more about us than our loved ones do?

This two-day event by Fossbox will explore these questions around surveillance, gender and society in a practical privacy workshop followed by a day of discussion, making and performance.
