The People VS The Machine

  • Location:
    Fixxion Warehouse Project, Skinner Street, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV1 4LD, GB

Join us for the closing party for Flip Festival 2012 which will see digital artists and illustration artists battle at Fixxion Warehouse Project in Wolverhampton from 9:30pm for an eclectic night of digitally-inspired visual art, set to a backdrop of electronic music.
Artwork will be created as a response to the future of the relationship between humans and computers. Will human and machine fuse to form a race of superhuman cyborgs or will we be crushed under the weight of a robot uprising, whilst having a dance? The night will feature artwork from a range of local and nationally known artists, and music influenced by the interchange of visual elements from Silhouettes and a special guest DJ. Tickets are £6 plus booking fee and can be purchased online. Here's the event details on Facebook.

Having been shunned by the other triffids for only having two legs he was raised by humans instead.Like other carnivorous plants, he’s a dab hand with a paintbrush. Having painted thousands of square feet of murals at attractions such as Blackpool Zoo and the Sea Life Centre he has recently turned his attentions towards illustration. “Where’s My Shoggoth?” is his first, a Cthulhu kids book published with Archaia.

When asked prepare for what? I just merely smiles and say i don’t know…They haven’t told me yet…

Ashley James Brown
[img]http://flipfestival.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/ashley_james_brown_500.jpg[/img]I am a sound and digital media artist based in Coventry. I work with a variety of technologies and digital medium to create interactive installations, games/play spaces and mobile applications/games. I work mainly with creative code using a variety of software tools and hardware.The relationship between physical form and digital code of how the abstract imperceptible world combines with the senses is something that fascinates me and drives my work. Digital art for me is about combining code and aesthetics with engagement and enjoyment through a physical sense.Above all, I aim to create memorable playful experiences.
