Edinburgh-based Alan Brown is a visual artist who works with installation, moving image and technology. He creates ingenious examples of device art that deal with the modes and difficulties of human communication.

In our globalised world, where new technology and social media determine much of how we exchange information and talk with each other, Alan Brown explores old media such as morse code through his artisan electronica.

Much of what defines humanity is the product of cultural transmission. Language, music, and art arise from an endless cycle of observation, learning, and copying by generations of humans. We are all engaged in a huge game of Chinese Whispers, and our unique behaviour is the result.

In the work ‘One’ by Erick Oh, Yoon Chung Han, Gautam Rangan & Mubbasir Kapadia, you can assume the role of a god. The microcosm evolving before your eyes reflects and subverts the natural systems in which we live. The work listens and responds to your actions, producing complex and intricate reactions.
