Our second event will take place in Sheffield on Wednesday 17th June 2015, during Sheffield Design Week. The daytime symposium will be at Electric Works, leading into an evening of audiovisual works at Access Space, both a few minutes walk from Sheffield train station.
This event is the second edition of an ongoing series, exploring diverse viewpoints (weaving, knitting, live coding, mathematics, generative visuals/music, and digital making) on how sound, image and threads allow us to both sense the abstract and conceptualise the tactile. This second symposium will focus on code as live material, and material as coded form, exploring in new light thrown by artists and makers increasingly using code in their practice alongside other materials.
Tickets are £7 (£5 conc.) per event or £10 (£8) for both.
Made possible through funding and support from Crafts Council, the University of Leeds, the CCI Exchange, the EPSRC Communities and Culture Network+ project “Inhabiting the Hack”, the AHRC Digital Transformations Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves project, and the support of Access Space, Electric Works, Lovebytes, Danger Noise Audio and Sheffield Design Week.
