The Random String microFestival is an exciting day exploring technology and art.
Digital artworks, interactive installations, hands-on arts activities and workshops will fill the City Arcade, including the Shop Front Theatre, Artspace’s City Arcadia and in the recently opened FabLab Coventry.
For the microFetsival I will produce a new vinyl installation work called Last Day.
Last Day is a piece that highlights the fragility of financial markets and the unpredictable nature of consumer habits, market forces and trends. The effects of these have been far reaching, seeing once thriving retail parks home to small businesses and former retail giants rendered as ghost towns of empty units. The choice of imagery shows that nothing is too big to fail.
The piece will be installed in the window of Unit 22 at the City Arcade.

To accompany the installation, during the mircoFestival you will be invited to create your own shop window honouring our favourite defunct brands!
The microFestival takes place 11th June 11:00 – 16:00 at the City Arcade in Coventry and is completely free
