We are delighted that cellist Peter Gregson played four pieces from his new work 'factory' at our Cryptic Nights event. Commissioned by New Media Scotland, this premiere performance of the work accompanied a networked dance piece choreographed by Sue Hawksley in response to Distance Lab's Mutsugoto. Peter wore Aeolia stretch sensor wearables developed for him by Sarah Kettley.

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.
