With the suppprt of NHS Lothian's Art & Therapeutic Design programme, the Alt-w LAB is hosting four mentoring residencies this winter. Glasgow-based Sven Werner is a artist and filmmaker who has worked in partnership with the Society of Scottish Artists to create a new installation.

Presented at the Royal Scottish Academy, with an accompanying audio work, Observer Cinema is the story of a man who, to his own surprise, finds he has a peculiar gift: he is able to recognise and inhabit the blind angles of people’s attention so that he becomes to all eyes invisible.

DCN Mentoring Residency | Stacey Hunter

With the suppprt of NHS Lothian's Art & Therapeutic Design programme, the Alt-w LAB is hosting four mentoring residencies this winter. Edinburgh-based design specialist Stacey Hunter is a producer, curator and writer.

Exploring how healthcare environments have implications for patients in terms of their identity and sense of self, Stacey will be thinking about how the depersonalising effect of clinical environments might be positively counteracted.

Starting with the idea of the ‘dressing table’, the residency will consider the accoutrements we surround ourselves with to communicate or sustain our 'best self', using the City of Edinburgh's art collection as a resource and reference point.

Alt-w LAB

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.

FOUND
Ziggy Campbell, Simon Kirby and Tommy Perman

From the 8th July 2016, daily 10am-5pm.
National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh

Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.

Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.

Atmosphere is our most popular research programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theaters from the 1920s and 30s.

Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.
