Part of Manchester Science Festival and in partnership with Captial&Centric, visitors will be able to explore 3 exhibitions featuring works that blend science, art and technology. On display will be self portraits created with Microbes (Microbe Me by John Biddulph), a dancer whose movements are controlled by social media (DeviceD by Manoli Moriaty & Lucie Lee) and even work that visitors can control using their brainwaves! (Verfasst by Logan and Wilcox)
In addition there will be drop in and bookable ‘maker’ workshops where visitors can get hands on creating their own scientific artworks such as colour change badges and machines made with found materials. On Saturday and Sunday visitors can browse the Steampunk Market, selling all manner of curiosities and contraptions. To quench your thirst there’s an on site bar selling real ale brewed on site, and the opportunity to attend a beer tasting workshop.
By night the exhibition becomes a space for performance and debate with ‘Illuminated Talks’ from experts in Science, Art and Technology and performances from bands, spoken word artists and musicians.
