A new ‘Patching Circle’ on creative code designed and run by artists, for artists. A Patching Circle is an informal gathering of anyone who is interested in patching languages such as Pure Data, Max/MSP, vvvv, and Quartz Composer.

Artist Antonio Roberts leads the Creative Code #1 series on Pure Data. Absolute beginners and experienced patchers are welcome. The event is free and open to everyone – work on personal or professional projects, school work, or just patch quietly to yourself in a room full of other people patching patches and helping other people patch.

    Ways of Something

    Thu Mar 12, 2015 18:30 - Thu Mar 12, 2015

    Birmingham, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

    85 artists, one minute at a time...
    Join us for the Birmingham premiere of episodes 1 & 2 (2014) and 3 (2015) of Ways of Something: a contemporary remake of John Berger’s classic BBC documentary, ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972). The new work consists of one-minute videos by 85 web-based artists. The original audio track is retained, disrupted by an exuberant series of 60-second artworks contributed by artists working with 3D rendering, GIFs, film remixes and webcam performances.

    The screening will be followed by a discussion with artist Lorna Mills (via Skype), Dr Richard Clay, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at University of Birmingham and contributing artist Antonio Roberts (UK).

    ‘Ways of Something’ marks the official launch of Vivid Projects’ new programme RADICAL NETWORKS, bringing you aesthetic disruption and questioning of the moving image, ethics and digital legacies.
    All are welcome to join us after the discussion for drinks to celebrate the start of our 2015 programme.

    This is a FREE event, but booking is strongly recommended to reserve your place.

    ‘Ways of Something’ was commissioned by The One Minutes, at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and compiled by Lorna Mills.

    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:

    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:

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