The University of Salford has announced the inaugural edition of the ScreenLab residency programme, an ambitious series of digital media art residencies at MediaCityUK that explore modes of perception and interaction under the theme 'Future of Broadcast'.
ScreenLab edition 0x01 brings accomplished international media artists James George (USA), Memo Atken (Turkey) and Elliot Woods (UK) to experiment with the technological capabilities of the state of the art Egg facility, the University's new public space for digital interaction. The ScreenLab MediaCityUK series presents and shares innovative concepts through prototyping experiences with an impressive suite of on-site visual technology, including the 120 MicroTile LED wall which can be reconfigured to create a group of human-scale ultra-resolution displays.
During a week-long residency period, the artists will develop open source tools and methods for future students and artists on and off campus to remix and re-use. This process includes contributions from a group of talented on-campus students within the arts and art-technology crossover. Students will be involved not only with learning, but also in the creation of new digital media techniques. Periodic quick-fire presentations and live blogging throughout the work period will also allow other students to understand the internals of how the final works are imagined and created.
Following the residency, the works will be presented to an audience of professionals, students and academics from the region. Participation then continues into a week-long exhibition period where the works are open for public interaction.
The University's MediaCityUK building is open 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday.
