I’m happy to announce that myself and Nick Briz will be co-artists in residence for MozFest 2016 from 28th – 30th October via the MozEx exhibition.
For those not in the know MozFest is an annual event celebrating free culture and a free and open internet:
Every autumn for the last six years, the global community working for a free and open internet has converged to create, make and design strategies and tools to support and protect our essential internet freedoms.
The Festival has grown to become one of the most prestigious events on the internet calendar, so much so that around 1,700 people attend from more than 50 countries every year. MozFest focuses on five key themes that are crucial to the free and open internet.
Our participation comes as a result of the MozEx exhibition/fringe event. The exhibition, which is a partnership between MozFest, V&A and Tate, has already had a fringe event as part of the festival – the Digital Artists Show ad Tell – and a publication which showcases the work of artists that
links between art, society, and the digital world.
Myself and Nick will be there for the whole festival so come and say hi!
On 11th October I’ll be back at Tate Britain to deliver a short talk and demonstration about my work at the Digital Artist Show & Tell as part of Mozilla Festival/MozFest 2016:
This Show & Tell will connect and focus on Mozilla Festival 2016, a digital art exhibition co-curated by digital learning teams at Tate and V&A, collaborating with the Mozilla Foundation for the Mozilla Festival 2016 (Ravensbourne, London, 28th-30th of October 2016).
The exhibit explores links between art, society, and the digital world. Explore the value of art to society through web literacy, digital inclusion and accessibility, privacy, policy, and hacking. Artists, designers, creative technologists, makers, coders, scientists, visual journalists – from techies to newbies! – join the conversation that relates to our lives online.
The event takes place over 10th – 11th October from 13:00 – 16:30 – I’ll be there on the 11th – and includes appearances from the likes of Emily Thorn, Kat Braybrooke and Will Hurt. Come on down, it’s free!
