Analogue meets digital in a series of experimental installations and generative performance using video feedback. There will be a short experimental AV performance by Raz Ullah and Sam Meech, conjuring sound and image to give feedback form, from 6:30pm.
Sam Meech is Lecturer in Graphic Design at the Manchester School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. He is an artist and videosmith working with people, projectors and machine knitting. His work includes large scale knitted data visualisations, public realm animations, community cinema installations and projection design for theatre. He has worked with a range of organisations including the National Film-board of Canada, Open Data Institute, Royal Opera House, Liverpool Biennial, FACT, and Whitworth Art Gallery Manchester.
Raz Ullah is an Audio-Visual Technician based at the Manchester School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. He is a sonic artist as well as a sound designer and musician.
Interruptions is a number of events, workshops and performances that intersects the Holden Gallery's annual programme of exhibitions. Its short-term format enables different methods of working, allowing invited artists to experiment in the large scale gallery space, and encourages collaborative practice across disciplines in a series of one-off events.
