The Office for Art, Design and Technology (led by Ryan Hughes) is delivering its Camouflage Season as a part of Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum’s exhibition, Concealment and Deception and as a part of Leamington Camouflage Festival. For its Coding Camo Workshop on the 17th August I’ll be delivering a Pure Data workshop at the headquarters of Office for Art, Design and Technology at Eaton House, Coventry.
This workshop will teach basic computer code using Processing, Pure Data and Live Code Lab and will result in a collaborative performance. The workshop will be led by Ryan Hughes and participants will benefit from 2 days working with established visiting practitioners, Antonio Roberts and Ashley James Brown. The final day of the workshop will focus on collaboratively composing a new work for performance which explores what camouflage might look like in the age of big data, ubiquitous wi-fi and so called smart devices.
Tickets for this four day workshop and performance are £40 (£30 concessions/under 20s) and can be obtained by sending to Ryan Hughes (email@example.com) a ~200 word statement explaining how the workshop would benefit your practice. Deadline is 9th August.
7 Days of Sound Festival kicks off on Monday 2nd December at Althorpe Studios and Gallery in Leamington Spa:
7 Days of Sound is a festival exploring the types of practice which exist between contemporary visual art and experimental music which has been organized by [RHP] CDRs, is hosted by Althorpe Studios and Gallery and was funded by Warwick District Council.
7 Days of Sound is filled with exciting events, new performances, art works, talks and many other projects made by over 50 regional, national and international practitioners at all career stages.
The festival is built around a large exhibition, titled 365 Days of Sound, which both celebrates the past year of [RHP] CDRs activity and looks forward to the coming year. Included in the exhibition are a range of art works, objects, merchandise, articles and other contextual information from the archive which has been built around the artists we work with.
