Alan Brown works with technology, moving image and sound. He creates device art to explore themes around communication, control, power and agency. His work is often playful and frequently involves modified everyday objects that function in altered or unexpected ways.

Remote Control is a series of interactive pieces (‘If You Have Nothing to Hide, You Have Nothing to Fear’, ‘Do Not Press’ & ‘Emotional Contagion’) that engage with issues of privacy, social control and compliance. They explore how we resist or give in to the increasing influence of screens.

The Dark Sky 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.
