Digital culture is pervasive and ever evolving. The Alt-w Fund supports experimentation with new media, as both artistic subject and as creative tool. The focus for 2008/09 was to support projects which dynamically engage audiences beyond the traditional screen.

Alex Hetherington, Benjamin Dembroski, Distance Lab, Emma Tolmie, FOUND, Wendy McMurdo & Paul Holmes, Sarah Kettley, Thomson & Craighead, ~ in the fields.

This exhibition reflects our information-rich world where attention is a commodity. As consumers we filter, as creators we share. In response, we forge new paths. These artists engage with these accelerated times and its dispersed networks of communication.

We were pleased to announce a two month Twitter residency by artist Sarah Sharp AKA @trixiebedlam

Sarah spent much of her youth practicing to become the world's greatest detective. Disappointed to find rather fewer unexplained murders cropping up than her literary role models had led her to expect, she now applies her acute powers of observation to the bigger mysteries of human existence.

Join Mr Cosmo at the GFT to celebrate Doris Day's birthday with a sing-a-long to one of her best loved films. The town of Deadwood is largely the abode of men, where Indian scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful, and handy with a gun as any man, until love tames her.

During this performance Mr Cosmo will send you lyrics and other treats to your Bluetooth enabled mobile devices. Please ensure you enable Bluetooth on your phones, but set them to silent. Mr Cosmo is now tech savvy thanks to New Media Scotland. It's the start of something...

Bupp!! (2009) is a new work commissioned by New Media Scotland. Created by Sound Designer and Composer Jules Rawlinson around themes of emergence, repetition and difference, Bupp!! scatters cropped and chopped vocal fragments onto a grid-based playspace.

Through generative and interventionist gesture, in an act of co-creativity the listener becomes conductor, composer and performer of the piece.
