Revolution 33 // Bring Your Own Beamer


Vivid Projects’ acclaimed 33 REVOLUTIONS programme concludes this winter with Bring Your Own Beamer, a one-night event curated by Antonio Roberts

Armed with projectors, artists are invited to beam responses to Vivid Projects' eight-month opening season, 33 REVOLUTIONS, throughout the space. Walls, floor, ceiling: all available.

Launched in February 2013, 33 REVOLUTIONS asks the question, can art and popular culture act as a catalyst for social change? The programme has taken audiences on a journey through film, print, performance and song, celebrating personal acts of protest and resistance from the anti-institutional spirit of 1960s-70s Britain through Riot Grrrl and radical black politics right up to the simmering Arab Spring and Occupy!

Thought provoking encounters between new works and
archive from have addressed ways in which filmmakers and artists from a diverse range of cultural situations and societies have protested. For details on the full programme visit: www.vividprojects.org.uk

You can bring your own beamer too - if you would like to make a response to 33 Revolutions and you have a projector, please fill in the form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1T-VQVyimx8q6yLux3eawYgd5hXjVGpqDavP_kycr2BY/

Deadline is Tuesday 29th October at 23:59. If you're successful we'll let you know soon after the deadline!

The People VS The Machine


Dates:
Sat Nov 03, 2012 21:30 - Sun Nov 04, 2012

Location:
Wolverhampton, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

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.

Lisk Bot
imageI cant even remember my first robot sticker I put up in the street... Throughout my time struggling to live in another country I drew a boxy characters, The little bot helped me put things in perspective while i was going through the usual rebellious actions of somebody who doesn't want to grow up and pay bills.Three years on and the bot has evolved from the intimate robot on the pages of my sketch book to an organized gang of intimidating robots holding weapons and leaving messages on the street preparing the human race. When asked prepare for what? I just merely smiles and say i don’t know...They haven’t told me yet…

Ashley James Brown
imageI 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.
