1st to 30th August 2014, Tue-Sat 10am-4pm.

An exhibition of new work by ~ in the fields, Chris Helson & Sarah Jackets, Hadi Mehrpouya & Robert Powell, Donna Leishman and Calum Stirling, all commissioned by New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund.

In Help Me Obi, Helson and Jackets have built a seemingly impossible machine, a 360º video hologram to investigate remote relationships, intimacy and dislocation. Mehrpouya & Powell have also created a vision of the world in miniature. By rearranging sculpted pieces on a board, players can endlessly influence the microcosm contained within a wooden casket.

Trace is a two-way system that will allow adult and child to communicate with each other whilst they are apart. The Adult interacts with the system via an app on their phone and the Child communicates via a bespoke communication toy that they helped design.

Parent and child have the ability to emotionally connect through networked objects that are integrated with smart textiles and wearable technologies. This aims to strengthen bonds of their relationships whilst apart, reducing separation anxiety in children through interacting with the objects.

A fictitious cautionary tale, set within the world of social media.Through an interface (based on the familiar layout and hierarchy of Facebook) Daphne, our protagonist shares her predilections, thoughts and volumes of meticulously crafted selfies.

She has excellent taste (her Front friends tell her so), she is ‘liked’ by many, but all is not as it seems.The edit that is her 'timeline' - updates with new pictures, videos and music - all of which, if listened to and looked at closely, reveal anxiety and insecurity warning signs.

The Small Society Lab at Dundee Contemporary Arts have worked with artist Aidan Moesby to construct a reflexive barometer of wellbeing for Dundee to provide a space – real, imagined or virtual – to reflect on ‘how things are’ and how can they be maintained or improved.

The Print Studio at DCA have produced a limited edition version of this periodic table of emotions. This edition of 118, referencing the number of chemical elements, is in archival pigment on 308gsm Hahnemühle Photo Rag®, sized 72cm x 111.5 cm, and priced at £132 inc VAT.

Alt-w | a journey to the clouds

~ in the fields
www.in-the-fields.org

This physical installation is for a young audience of age group 8 to 13 years. There is a room covered by a filigree dome, a praxinoscope and a moss garden. It's a story walked into to uncover wonders, a journey to send problems away, and a space of wellbeing for children.

Working with sight, hearing, smell and touch, the artist collective have used their own sense of the elements to create a space in which children can feel relaxed and inspired. It's a world to tell their tale one step at a time, where something hidden can be found.
