DEADLINE: Saturday 23rd September 2017, 12 noon.
reach.sanctuarylab.org

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.

NEoN Digital Arts Festival

Material Speculation: ISIS

7th-12th November 2017. RSVP
Across the City of Dundee.

Media Archaeology

NEoN will expand on it being Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, and will unveil hidden histories by working with artists who use the current (and controversial) practice of ‘media archaeology’.

Media archaeologists uncover and reconsider the obsolete, persistent, and hidden material cultures of the technological age - from big data software algorithms to tiny silicon chips.

NEoN proposes that artists are future media archaeologists, recorders of our current information-based society, and time-travellers highlighting the continued relevance of our long past.

Sanctuary

23rd-24th September 2017, noon to noon. RSVP
Murray's Monument, A712, Dumfries & Galloway.

Sanctuary is a public art event within the Dark Skies Park of Dumfries & Galloway. This 24-hour site-specific laboratory explores privacy, identity, place and space beyond the reach of networks. Installations, radio transmissions, screenings and performance serve to create a temporary community.

Click here for the 2017 list of artists.

The Dark Skies Park is a specially designated area that suffers from no light pollution. It is remote, beautiful and crucially for the artists also ‘electronically dark’. At the core of the event will be The Dark Outside FM, a hyper-local radio station that premieres new work and then deletes it.

Alt-w | Cybraphon

Cycle 06 Alt-w Production Award -
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.
