FutureEverything: Smoke Signals

In a world overloaded with data, it is difficult to make sense of the noise, and as arts organisations generate more data, new ways of seeing are needed. Smoke Signals, by Ed Carter and David Cranmer, takes data beyond the confines of the screen to visualise digital interaction. Turning the data of seven arts organisations into a visual and sonic experience, Smoke Signals invokes a physical presence of data streams, with each signal and sound indicating the movements of data within the contemporary online network. Smoke Signals premieres as part of FutureEverything 2016, a citywide annual festival of ideas around digital culture. Please note that the work emits smoke and is in a darkened room. Although the space is ventilated, viewing of the work may not suitable for those with respiratory problems. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Open 10am-6pm, Thu 31st March – Sat 2nd April. Smoke Signals will perform for thirty minutes every hour. Free entry, no ticket required.
