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.
We are collecting childhood rhymes from around the world spoken by many generations of local residents of the borough for a sound installation as part of the Cultural Olympiad Festival. Please come to Furtherfield Gallery in Finsbury Park on Saturday 21 July, 11-3pm, to take part!
Public exploratory radiation walk around Finsbury Park, measuring mobile phone radiation levels and discovering what type of radiations we are exposed to on a daily basis. As we walk, we will unravel a parallel, hidden story of the local area along with technical data and possible medical effects of the radiation. Participants will measure radiation levels, GPS positions and marked levels on a large map of the area, creating a collaborative artwork (poster sized map of local radiation) to be made available for display as part of the exhibition after the event.
Olga P Massanet and Thomas Aston have built a custom made VLF antenna to monitor ionospheric disturbances caused by solar storms. For this exhibition they invite makers and thinkers to participate in a creative sprint and come up with ideas on how to make these disturbances felt. Whether it's a device, a visualisation, a sonification, or a poem, participants will design interfaces to tune into some of the most powerful forces that permeate our world.
