Atmosphere | Brigadoon

Brigadoon

11th & 12th October 2019. RSVP
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK wide celebration of movie musicals, we're returning our Atmosphere screening programme to its birthplace, Inspace, for the first time in six years. Back in 2013, on the invitation of the Year of Natural Scotland, we first screened Brigadoon and it became our most fabled Atmosphere.

Shot entirely on a sound stage in Hollywood after director Vincente Minnelli found Scotland wasn't Scottish enough. Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse star in this 1954 MGM musical. Guest augmentoligists returning include Pyrus Botanicals. Anything is possible... even miracles. The mists will once again clear, to reveal the mythical village.

Focusing on the archiving of 'rude' data, each frame in this series of animations is generated by taking a single strip of pixels from an image in the cache of a computer's web browser, and rotating it about a fixed axis.

The process is repeated on each subsequent strip to produce an animation that substitutes an explicit image for something seemingly innocent. The computer oblivious to the perceived corrupting influence of what it's processing.

Alt-w Fund | Cycle 13

Alt-w

Initiated in Dundee by Scottish Screen, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.

The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.

Cycle 13 of the fund will commission and curate work for presentation on the 4.5m high LED screen that welcomes every visitor to the refurbished Music Hall in Aberdeen. The deadline for applications is the 30th May 2019 at 6pm.

Our curatorial focus is two-fold, long-form generative work that's infinite and algorithmic in nature, or short-form looping animation. Both should be silent and have immediacy for presentation in a transient space with a limited dwell time.

This opportunity is for both new or existing work. Lead applicants for a new commission should be based in Scotland but can collaborate with anyone from anywhere. Applications for existing work can be from the UK and EU.

The deadline for applications has now passed.
