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.
This regular live show highlights current activity and controversies around contemporary practices in art and technology, discussing events, exhibitions, debates and their social contexts with all manner of player and participant. Features include lively debate and interviews with artists, techies, writers and curators, interspersed with bleeding-edge music and a rolling programme of experimental creative adventures for your amusement.
Furtherfield supports experimental practices at the intersections of art, technology and social change. Many of these practices share an ecological approach - an interest in the interrelation of technological and natural processes: beings and things, individuals and multitudes, matter and patterns. They have been developing for nearly half a century, but their effects become especially compelling in the context of contemporary ecological and economic crises.
Ada Lovelace Day was conceived of and promoted by Suw Charman-Anderson as a way of "bringing women in technology to the fore". It succeded in motivating nearly 2000 people to publish a blog post about a woman in technology whom they admired.
