MoCC have commissioned artist Louise Ashcroft and digital tinkerers Autonomous Tech Fetish to make some new conversation works for the MoCC programme of digital and hacktivist activities happening in Exeter in May 2016.
Louise Ashcroft invites the people of Exeter to help her re-make the internet from scratch, during a series of workshops in which participants will be asked to replicate their favourite digital spaces and internet objects using low-value, analogue craft materials. She will also be making a new work for Gallery 333 at Exeter Phoenix which attempts to squeeze the whole universe into a 125x74x36cm window space.
Hungry for information or suffering data indigestion? Join Autonomous Tech Fetish as they explore how we consume data and how it consumes us. They’ll present a series of artworks – ‘data dishes’ and ‘cutlery contraptions’ – produced from local data. It will be refreshing, different and fun!
The MoCC artist commissions are being developed in partnership with Exeter Phoenix, Exeter Library and FabLab Devon. Thanks everyone who submitted a proposal for the commission opportunities.
