Atmosphere | Wreck-it Ralph

Wreck-it Ralph.gif

Friday 11th November 2016, 7:30 for 8pm. RSVP
Hannah Maclure Centre, 1-3 Bell Street, Dundee DD1 1HP

On the 30th anniversary of the Fix It Felix Jr. arcade game, Ralph is still playing the bad guy. His only job is to wreck the Niceland apartment building, so that Felix can fix it back up again. But there's no piping hot power-up pies for Ralph. He dreams of one day being the hero, and winning a medal.

Rich Moore's brilliantly conceived 2012 Disney animated feature appeals to all ages, with references to video games old and new. With prizes for high scores and best costumes, come explore the spaces inside and between the arcade machines. It'll be everyone's duty to have a sugar rush.

The Spaces We’re In

Physical urban space and virtual information space are inseparably intertwined. How does being digital change our sense of our spatial surroundings? Can we play in or animate the hybrid or glitched spaces in-between? Is there negative space in cyberspace?

NEoN, now in its seventh year, emcompasses exhibitions, workshops, talks, performances and screenings. It has established itself as a international platform to showcase digital art. Dundee, always a city in transition, continues to show how digital is an important part of it's reinvention.

~ in the fields

Opened in 1801 the Crinan Canal in Argyll & Bute connects Loch Gilp with the Sound of Jura by providing a much shorter route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides than going around the Kintyre peninsula.

Vessels pass through fifteen locks as they navigate through the canal. ~ in the fields will take live data relating to each lock and create a kinetic parametric architectural structure in response, at the mouth of the canal in Crinan.

Charles Young

An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure is designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.

The models will be combined into an installation that presents a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the Travelling Gallery will be behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

Dennis & Debbie Club

Dennis & Debbie Club are a Glasgow-based digital art duo specialising in video-animations & installations. Convinced that within the virtual, fantasy, ideology and reality collide in the most horrifying and stunning of ways, they are not digital escapists, they just want to abandon reality.

Their newest computer generated installation re-imagines remnants of Scottish Brutalist architecture as the headquarters for an utopian movement: the NEO BRUTES – a fever dream of resurrected Modernists-gone-radicals that are now expanding into virtual reality.
