Cryptic Nights | Refraction

Cryptic Nights | Refraction

8th & 9th March 2018, 8pm. RSVP
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

Treading the line between reality and imagination, composer and sound designer Luci Holland in collaboration with lighting designer Tom Sulat and visual artist Ross Blair invites you to embark on an interactive, virtual exploration of an underwater environment.

Refraction is an otherworldly experience where your movement directly affects responsive audio and visuals. Observing and interacting with the space, you control your own immersion and the resulting impact it has on the senses. Followed by a Q&A on the 8th March.

DCN Mentoring Residency | Sven Werner

City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE

During his residency filmmaker Sven Werner created an installation and accompanying audio work. It tells the story of a man who, to his own surprise, finds he has a peculiar gift: he is able to recognise and inhabit the blind angles of people’s attention so that he becomes to all eyes invisible.

He learns to move past hundreds of people every day while staying entirely unnoticed. He slowly becomes accustomed to inhabiting these hidden spaces and empty folds of daily life, until he decides to abandon his mundane existence to live only under the radar of the public’s attention.

City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE

Stacey Hunter is a producer, curator and writer. In exploring how healthcare environments have implications for patients in terms of their identity and sense of self, she has been thinking about how the depersonalising effect of clinical environments might be positively counteracted.

As a design specialist, Stacey started with ideas of the 'dressing table' and 'vanity unit'. The residency then considered the accoutrements we surround ourselves with to communicate or sustain our 'best self', using the City Art Centre collection as a resource and reference point.

Alt-w LAB

Alt-w

June 2017 to July 2018.
Level 4, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

The Alt-w LAB marked a new chapter for the Alt-w Fund. This pilot national media lab was a space for the production, participation and presentation of creative technology. Open to all, encouraging new ideas and applications, whilst providing space for our existing Alt-w alumni.

Our first project was 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 were based at the lab.

Cycle 09 Alt-w Production Award - Small Society Lab
aidanmoesby.co.uk

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

'The Periodic Table of Emotions' has gone on to create multiple visible manifestations of the attitude and mood of many different people and places including hospitals, nurturing a myriad of ongoing personal connections. Follow @DundeeFeels to engage with the work on Twitter.

Cycle 06 Alt-w Production Award - Tomoko Hayashi

12th May to 8th July 2018, Wed-Sun 10am-5pm, FREE.
City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE

Mutsugoto is a prototype body-drawing communication device intended for people who find themselves in long distance relationships. It allows partners to communicate through the language of touch as expressed in light on the canvas of the human body.

A custom projection system allows the two users to draw on each other's bodies whilst they lie in bed. Drawings are transmitted live between their two locations, enabling a different kind of communication that leverages the emotional quality of physical gesture.
