On Friday 29th March 18:30 – 22:00 I’ll be showing two new videos at Copy / Paste at V&A.

Human culture is built on a history of replication. We copy to learn, to assimilate, to preserve and to magnify. How is this behaviour being transformed by advances in technology and what is the value of the authentic or the original today? This Friday Late, watch dance pieces to examine how human error impacts repetition and examine the role of copying in preserving cultural heritage. From architecture to online identities, explore duplication in the digital age.

I’ll be showing two videos titled Visually Similar:

Visually Similar is a video work that examines how images and videos posted online can be used to preserve history, but can also be remixed to create new narratives. In sharing our work online we make a permanent record of a point in time, which can then be used out of context.

I’ll be there IRL too if y’all have questions. Check out the rest of the awesome programme too!

V&A Digital Design Weekend, 23rd -24th September

On 23rd and 24th September I’ll be taking part in V&A’s Digital Design Weekend.

Back for the seventh year, the Digital Design Weekend brings together artists, designers, engineers, technologists and the public to celebrate and share contemporary digital art and design. Participants take over the Museum with pop-up installations, robotics, creative electronics, talks, workshops, family-friendly events and more.

The Digital Design Weekend explores human-machine interaction, making and collaborative work. The event coincides with the London Design Festival at the V&A.

I’ll be presenting Exposed and Unauthorised Copy, both of which were commissioned for the Short Circuit Project 2016 – 2017.

MozFest, 28th – 30th October

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!
