Play Your Place is an open artwork and online game-building game created by artists, programmers, and imaginative citizens to develop a collective vision for a richer, emancipated life for all beings in all places.
In partnership with CultureCode and Land Securities, Furtherfield presents Digital Zoo – Life from the world wild web – a touring exhibition that explores how our lives - personal and political - are being shaped by digital technologies and how our relation to the natural world is changing.
We have a situation! is a series of live, trans-border, online-offline participatory performances addressing current cross-cultural European issues, led by Helen Varley Jamieson and Martin Eisenbach in partnership with APO33 (FR), MAD (NL) and Schaumbad Freies Atelierhaus (AT).
Artist and composer Michael Szpakowski has worked with local people to create a generative sound sculpture that invokes the collective memory of childhood that people bring to Haringey from all over the world. Part of PARK ART in Haringey - an alternative, multi-venue sculpture park for the London Borough of Haringey.
This is a collection of artworks, texts and resources about freedom and openness in the arts, in the age of the Internet. Freedom to collaborate – to use, modify and redistribute ideas, artworks, experiences, media and tools. Openness to the ideas and contributions of others, and new ways of organising and making decisions together.
In this project by IOCOSE, comissioned in partnership between AND Festival and Furtherfield, the artists will exploit crowdsourcing as a tool for the creation of a shared belief. The “crowd” will assemble its own conspiracy which will involve them again, at the end, as human beings.
Furtherfield's Game Art programme draws on interdisciplinary practice that takes the engines and culture of digital games as the tools and materials of art practice.
Artists' work in this field connects both with mainstream art world interests and atypical-audiences-for-art engaging them with aesthetic and game-play experiences that have them question the world in enjoyable ways.
Film and video artist Pete Gomes has created a new film about the artist-led online community Furtherfield. Featuring interviews with Furtherfield co-directors Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett as well as artists, techies, games theorists and users of Furtherfield platforms, the short film captures a dynamic networking collective working across technology, social change and art.
