In 2003 Vivid is introducing quarterly Open Labs offering West Midlands (UK) practitioners, from a wide range of disciplines, an opportunity to investigate and play with media arts technologies.
Each lab will offer surgeries giving the artists/practitioners the opportunity to discuss their practice in a supportive and stimulating environment.
Vivid will invite guest speakers, artists and facilitators to attend the labs who can offer expert advice and tuition during the workshops and surgeries.
Open Lab2, 30 April to 3 May 2003
Practitioners will explore the potential of this innovative software which combines the graphic programming power of MAX with the audio capabilities of MSP, together creating an audio visual software application.
Facilitated by Matt Olden (the Mighty Jungulator) and Duncan Speakman - to be confirmed.
Each intensive four-day lab is free and will run Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30 to 5.30.
Places are strictly limited, please call +44 (0) 121 233 4061 to book.
The next lab will run 2-5 July 2003.
