We too once lived in this house of stars, and we thought of you @ Atlantic Center for the Arts
An outdoor AV interactive experiment in wild Florida: the land the Voyager probes were launched from in 1977. The Voyager record emphasises the “homo musicus”. The Golden Record is laden with music and sonic material as a mode to communicate the quality of experience and emotional dimension of being human. This performance experiment will invite you into a strange communication at a point when Spacex rockets are launching from Cape Canaveral and the tone, aesthetic and character of space investigation is shifting.
This showing of work is part of the Inside Out event, a group showing by artists, writers & musicians on Residency 161 - with input from Kate Genevieve, Ben Zucker, Shannon Novak and Farnaz Fatemi - [Of the Spheres] (http://ofthespheres.com/)

Between Worlds @ The Spire
Live event exploring non-verbal communication: how we perceive and receive across space without words using sound, touch, feeling, light, symbols. We - Louis D’aboville, Rachel Blackman, Kate Genevieve - are interested in the possibilities of empathy and technology for ecology, activism and playful creativity. This night includes a sound ritual from Isobel Anderson, a fibre optic installation from Maf’j Alvarez, data projections from Kate Genevieve and Simon Wibberley and a Virtual Reality experience from Dr Keisuke Suzuki. There will be Sufi dance, live drawing from scribe-of-the-unconscious Will Scobie, music from Tom Beaufoy (Evil 9) and a chance to share an intimate moment with a stranger across the dark side of a mirror in Chroma and Stillpoint’s Transmission.
The evening begins with a fire ritual at 5pm where we offer you a chance to let go of something that no longer serves your life. Have something ready to burn.

Details on Brighton Digital Festival
C H R Θ M A are opening the doors on their Virtual Reality development. We are exploring how virtual reality and network technology can dive deep into “shared experience.” Our current focus is on how creative technology might viscerally connect us with the ecosystem out beyond the city. We believe that questions of mental, social and environmental ecology do not simply inform each other, but depend on each other. Anthropologist Gregory Bateson writes that “the unit of survival is the organism plus environment. We are learning by bitter experience that the organism which destroys its environment destroys itself.”
You are invited to visit and explore work in progress, creatively input and imagine alternative collective territories and future uses for Virtual Reality. It’s not a show - we’re just opening the doors on where we are and welcoming you into it.
KG talk about dream research & the creative unconscious.
