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.
A panel – chaired by Ruth Catlow and joined by Steve Fletcher and Lindsay Taylor – that discusses an electrifying cluster of controversies: the subversive intentions and emancipatory motivations of many media artists; the needs and concerns of public art collectors and conservators; the opportunities for private collectors and the interests of high art market speculation.
An open mapping session, following on from the Digital Futures: Money No Object event that was held in October, that will look at alternative currencies and value systems and will act as an evaluation and gathering session before a larger prototyping event that will follow in January 2015.
Webizens join us to draw, make and play games for the Web We Want: to defend freedom of access and a life free from surveillance and data exploitation; to distribute knowledge and resources for the benefit of millions of people and their enduring communities.
