19th August to 30th September 2019. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Focusing on the archiving of 'rude' data, each frame in this series of animations is generated by taking a single strip of pixels from an image in the cache of a computer's web browser, and rotating it about a fixed axis.

The process is repeated on each subsequent strip to produce an animation that substitutes an explicit image for something seemingly innocent. The computer oblivious to the perceived corrupting influence of what it's processing.

A tide of change is sweeping across the globe - from immigration to the rise in nationalism - socio-political landscapes are increasingly subject to crisis. Unparalleled events have elicited an unprecedented response as activists and community groups mobilise.

Cycle 13 Alt-w Production Award - Charles Young

From October 1st 2019, on rotation. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Charles Young is best known for his Alt-w supported project Paperholm, where he designed, made, photographed and animated a tiny model building daily out of paper for one thousand days. His looping moving images explore ideas around the perception of space, imagination and memory.

In this new series of HD animations, a paper model of the neighbourhood that surrounds the Music Hall will be shown from varying angles and at different scales. This base of the existing city will then be added to with a layer of invented structures and occupation that are bound to delight.

Cycle 13 Alt-w Production Award - Ray Interactive
Sam Healy & Brendan McCarthy

From October 1st 2019, on rotation. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

In this map of the stars directly above the Music Hall, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.

Lauriston Castle, 2 Cramond Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 6AD

You're invited to a weekend in the country on the estate of Sir William McCordle. But better beware, secrets will be revealed, and it appears that everyone, above and below stairs, has an axe to grind with our distinguished host.

Click here for our image archive.

Director Robert Altman brought together a fine ensemble cast for this 2001 production. Written by Julian Fellows, it's a study of the British class system in the 1930s, all wrapped up in a murder mystery worthy of Agatha Christie herself.
