Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

DEADLINE: 12 noon, Tuesday 1st September 2015.

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.

Opened in 1801 the Crinan Canal in Argyll & Bute connects Loch Gilp with the Sound of Jura by providing a much shorter route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides than going around the Kintyre peninsula.

Vessels pass through fifteen locks as they navigate through the canal. ~ in the fields will take live data relating to each lock and create a kinetic parametric architectural structure in response, at the mouth of the canal in Crinan.

An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure is designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.

The models were combined into an installation that presented a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the Travelling Gallery were behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

The Bothy Project have commissioned new work by Torsten Lauschmann for Pig Rock Bothy at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and developed a companion work for the Travelling Gallery.

During exploratory experiments with renewable energy, Lauschmann became interested in the material and aesthetic qualities of solar panels, appropriating them as a canvas rather than an energy resource.
