Cycle 06 Alt-w Production Award - Tomoko Hayashi
www.tomokohayashi.com

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.

Cybraphon | FOUND

Cybraphon

4th August to 4th September 2011, Wed-Sun, 12-8pm
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Inspired by early 19th century mechanical bands such as the nickekodeon, Cybraphon is an interactive version of a mechanical band in a box. We're delighted to welcome it's BAFTA winning divatastic self back to the lab, with new tunes and new speaking voice courtesy of Aidan Moffat.

Consisting of a series of robotic instruments housed in a large display case, Cybraphon behaves like a real band. Image conscious and emotional, the band’s performance is affected by online community opinion as it searches the web for reviews and comments about itself 24 hours a day.
