We are collaborating with the Crucible network at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory on a new programme, Defining Pi, which aims to test the potential of the new Raspberry Pi computer and spread understanding in coding. The artists selected for the programme, which runs from August to October, are Richard Healy, Kate Owens, Rob Smith, Chooc Ly Tan and Dan Tombs. The programme is being delivered in partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation and with funding from Arts Council England.
In August, visual artist Keren Cytter will relocate from New York to Wysing for a residency with musicians Keira Fox and Charlie Feinstein of Maria & the Mirrors and David Aird of Vindicatrix. This exciting new collaboration will lead to the production of a new multimedia performance work, Vociferous, including new video and live music, which will be premiered at Wysing’s annual festival Space-Time on the 31st August, and later performed in an expanded version at the ICA London.
From July, artist Gustav Metzger will re-locate his home and studio to Wysing to develop a new series of works in our Live/Work studio. The Live/Work studio is a space where artists come for longer periods of time to research new work and during 2012 Jamie Shovlin occupied the studio.
