Reach is a collaborative platform that explores ways of using online participation to construct offline artworks. The aim is to capture public responses to Sanctuary's themes each year for an artist to then use in their work. The final artwork will only exist at Sanctuary for 24 hours from 12 noon on the 23rd September 2017.

The first to use Reach will be artist Tim Shaw to explore darkness, remoteness and presence. Reach aims to explore the friction that exists between the networked online world and the offline, disconnected world and was conceived by the curators of Sanctuary and supported by The Space and Creative Scotland.

Atmosphere | A Zed & Two Noughts

A Zed & Two Noughts

Thursday 30th November 2017, 7:30 for 8pm. £10
Alt-w LAB, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

Peter Greenaway's visually stunning 1985 film was the first with his "most important collaborator" cinematographer Sacha Vierny. A story of twin zoologists Oswald and Oliver Deuce who, after losing their wives in a freak car collision with a swan outside the zoo where they work, develop a curious attachment to the car's driver Alba, who survived.

Developed in collaboration with DCN Design Fellow Susana Cámara Leret, this is our first Atmosphere event in the Alt-w LAB. Punctuated by the dulcet tones of Sir David Attenborough and the influence of Johannes Vermeer, the film is a rumination on life, love and sex and the inevitability of birth, death and decay.

Alt-w LAB

Alt-w

June 2017 to February 2018.
Level 4, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

The Alt-w LAB at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh marks a new chapter for the Alt-w Fund. This pilot national media lab is a space for the production, participation and presentation of creative technology. Open to all, encouraging new ideas and applications, whilst providing space for Alt-w alumni.

Our first project is with NHS Lothian's Art and Therapeutic Design programme. Together we've awarded three Creative Research Artist Fellowships to explore the activity and research interests of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience in Edinburgh. All three are based at the lab.
