Programme

10am – Holotronica – holographic showcase

11am – Lorna McNeill – Transforming from Stardust
This experiential workshop is an opportunity to respond to the holographic projection of a light art installation using colour, words and movement.
As we connect to the deep time journey of the universe from inception to present day, our experience of the veil separating the physical from the eternal spiritual becomes thinner. We are literally made from the same chemical elements as stardust. Nearly every element within us was once inside an exploding star. We are stardust which has become conscious.

12pm – Jenny Bennett (Moogambo) & Michael Tyack (Circulus) Main Gallery
Combing ancient instruments, percussion & moog synthesiser with binaurals and cosmic cords derived from the natural harmonic series of tones & properties of the number 9, Jenny Bennett & Michael Tyack will play alongside Paul Friedlander’s spinning waveforms to create sublime soundscapes and kaleidoscopic harmonies.

12pm – Kinetica, Computer Art Society and Ravensbourne present:
Art and immersion – Panel discussion
Tony Langford from Kinetica and Nick Lambert from Ravensbourne / CAS introduce a panel exploring how artists are using new and virtual technologies to transform our perception. Jose Montemayor will present ‘Virtual Awakening’ a platform combining art with futuristic, immersive and transformative technology. Luke Robert Mason curates ‘Virtual Futures’ events that bring together artists, philosophers, technologists and futurologists. James Edward Marks from PsychFi / Sci-Fi-London will demonstrate the potential of Ravensbourne’s ‘Holoportal’ in combination with other virtual and holographic technologies

2pm – Noam Ben Jacov
Noam Ben-Jacov’s performance work focuses on the human body as the ‘motor’, with objects constructed around it. Noam will be presenting his work and showing footage of past performances on the Hologauze screen.

3pm – Jenny Bennett (Moogambo) & Michael Tyack (Circulus) Main Gallery
Combing ancient instruments, percussion & moog synthesiser with binaurals and cosmic cords derived from the natural harmonic series of tones & properties of the number 9, Jenny Bennett & Michael Tyack will play alongside Paul Friedlander’s spinning waveforms to create sublime soundscapes and kaleidoscopic harmonies.

3pm – Analema Group – KIMA:The Wave
KIMA:The Wave uses cymatics to visualise soundwave patterns. The audience becomes participant and co-creator of a sonic composition and is invited to explore a real-time visualisation of their own voice

4pm – Jonty Hurwitz – Nano Art: Trust
In 2016 Jonty Hurwitz created a sculpture of the world’s smallest human form. The artwork went viral with over 200 million views around the globe, and a documentary on CNN ‘Ones to Watch’. The artwork was also awarded a guinness world record for the work. Jonty will talk about the creation of this minuscule work measuring in at around one Tenth of a Millimetre.

6pm – Kemal and the Spinning Cosmos
This experimental collaborative performance will combine holographic visuals by Stuart Warren Hill & Lucio Cavallari, spinning illuminated wave form sculptures by Paul Friedlander, live music by Michael Tyack and Jenny Bennett from Circulus & Moogambo and performance art by Maria Almena from Kimatica Studio. Devised and directed by Dianne Harris from Kinetica Museum, this experience aims to manifest a multidimensional universal concept of the spinning cosmos and connection to the source of life through an ancient ceremony of whirling inspired by Sufi dance and the dervish.

6.30pm – Holotronica
Stuart Warren-Hill, founder of Hexstatic and Holotronica. presents new work created for his latest invention, the Hologauze, a projection system enabling the world’s largest, brightest, high-resolution indoor holograms.
