March 9, 2012

Lovebytes is a festival that explores the creative and cultural potential of digital technologies. This years line-up looks unbelievable cool! Taking place between the 22-24th of March, there are a whole host interesting events in Sheffield. Best of all, most of them are pretty cheap to attend or free! Here are some highlights we are looking forward to.

Intuition and Ingenuity Exhibition

This exhibition in the Workstation pays tribute to the ideas of Alan Turing, on the aniversary of his hundreth birthday. Turing, for those of you who don’t know, was the inventor of the digital computer, a philosopher and a code-breaker during WWII. His legacy and importance shouldn’t be understated.

This is a chance to see some of the most forward thinking and up to date motion graphics, animation and experimental short films on the big screen as currated by onedotzero. It’s on at 11:30am on a Friday morning, but I can’t think of a better way to start your day!

Spawning Ground

An 8:1 speakersystem will play soundscapes of rivers and fjords from around the world in a sound installation exploring the “acoustic activity of subaquatic environments.” The installation is the work of world renowned field recording artist Jana Winderen.

Press Pause Play

“A film about hope, fear and digital culture” Press Pause Play looks at the democratization of art through the advent of the internet. The film examines the double edged sword. Cheap technology and ease of digital distribution make it easy for artists and makers to get their work out to a larger audience. But, any new voices must now join all the others, in a see of mediocrity. This film is required watching if you are trying to get your work out there and seen, be it art, music, film or writing.

Pattern Discovery

Finally, some live music. Pattern Discovery will showcase ambient and aggressive electronica from Bruce Gilbert (the guy from Wire), R/S, Russell Haswell, and another chance to hear Jana Winderen’s sound installation. This is an unbelievably good line up. Check out any of the artists.
