Upgrade! Scotland presents: ~ in the fields


31 October, 5 PM at:
Dundee Contemporary Arts

"To describe a system is basically to construct a new one. What we do is to select and to focus... We attempt to condense specific moments into inventions of autonomous, cocooned systems ."

~ in the fields, Nicole Heidtke and Stefan Baumberger, have been collaborating since 2005 and are currently researching the intangible nature of shoals, flocks and swarm behaviour at Bass Rock (North Berwick) which hosts the single largest Gannet colony in the world. They received funding from Alt-W in support of this work and have also been awarded the Scottish Arts Council new media residency at Abertay University.

Their partnership is based in interdisciplinay practice combining: "art with science, philosophy with poetry and virtual with real architecture". ~ in the fields have produced elegant installations which collide research into natural phenomena, such as the growth of plants and organisms, with computer aided installations.
