The Disrupted/Disruptive Pattern, 23rd September

On 23rd September myself and Lucy Hutchinson will be showing new work from our Evasive Manoeuvres project at The Disrupted/Disruptive Pattern at Leamington Spa Art Gallery as part of the Leamington Camouflage festival.

Dubious Engagement

Since the camofleurs were operating in Leamington Spa during WW2, the world has changed immeasurably. What form does camouflage take in the age of Big Data, ubiquitous Wi-Fi and so called smart devices?

The Coventry based, artist-led group Office for Art, Design and Technology present The Disrupted/Disruptive Pattern, a night of experimental and digital audiovisual attempts at answering this question…..

Computer codes which hide large sections of film, masks which combat facial recognition software static as a disruptive tool and clashing arrays of projected images are just some of the techniques Office for Art, Design and Technology will employ during The Disrupted/Disruptive Pattern.

You will be given the opportunity to see Concealment & Deception Exhibition after-hours along with a temporary installation by Antonio Roberts and Lucy Hutchinson (Birmingham) before being led into The Assembly Rooms.

After a screening of RSG-Black-1 by RSG (NYC) there will be a live performance using computer game engines, dance music and noise by Michael Lightborne and Ryan Hughes (Birmingham)

We’ll be showing two new pieces, Dubious Engagement and Camo Mouldings within the gallery and then later at the Royal Pump Rooms.
