Welcome to a brand new season of Interfaces Monthly! We hope you can join us at The Trampery Republic

About

The artists in this months topic, 'A hidden world', will explore and analyse the nuances inherent in human processes. Through the work of Marta Di Francesco, Matteo Zamagni, Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway, the evening will examine the hidden algorithmic fabric of the world derived from the microcosmic to the macrocosmic scale.

Marta Di Francesco:

Marta Di Francesco invites us to discover the poetry inherent in dance and performance, and how we can reconsider these processes when standard notions of time and volume are taken apart.

Matteo Zamagni:

Matteo Zamagni’s body of work is both abstract, yet also seemingly rooted in the natural physical world. His practice takes the viewer on journeys that are rendered using techniques ranging from convolutional neural networks to the mathematical algorithms such as the 3D mandlebulb.

Lise Autogena & Joshua Portway:

Artists Lise Autogena (DK) and Joshua Portway (UK) have worked together since the early 90’s. Using custom-built technologies, real-time data and video, they have developed large-scale multimedia installations, site-specific works and performances. Recent works have explored the conflict over uranium mining in Greenland (Kuannersuit; Kvanefjeld), visualising the global financial markets as night sky (Black Shoals; Dark Matter) and attempted to find the worlds bluest sky using real-time data from NASA satellites (Most Blue Skies). In 2013 they developed 'Foghorn Requiem', a requiem for a disappearing sound, performed by the Souter Lighthouse foghorn, three brass bands and fifty ships on the North Sea. 

Lise Autogena is a Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art at the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute (C3RI) at Sheffield Hallam University.
