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.

Nicky Bird investigates the contemporary relevance of found photographs, and the hidden histories of specific sites, investigating how they remain resonant. She incorporates new photography with oral histories and genealogy by collaborating with people who have a significant connection to the site, archive or artefact.

Heritage Site is an art and archaeology project working with the Five Sisters shale bings in West Calder and a house that is buried beneath. It brings together artists, heritage visualisation archaeologists and local community members to create new ways of imaging what lies underground in both practical and metaphorical senses.

"A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10,191. The Known Universe is ruled by the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange."

The spice enables travel to any part of the universe without moving, by folding space. Join a star studded cast on a journey helmed by messianic Kyle MacLachlan to control the desert planet of Arrakis, the source of the spice.

At the Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival, Matt Collings and Sean Williams will present their new 7.1 electronic sound mix of David Lynch’s film adaptation. The original sci-fi novel is the world's best-selling, ever.

However, a case of life imitating art unfolds in this terrifying take on the Englishman abroad drama. Guest foley artists will work on live analogue special effects throughout the screening, bringing the mechanics behind the film firmly into view with a virtuoso slice and dice.
