// Interactive experiences

— A blueprint for living 100 years
With one in three of us in the UK today living to see our 100th birthday, we’ll be creating a live installation to make a blueprint for a 100 year life.
What do you want to do on your 40th birthday, or what shouldn't you be doing if you want to reach 70 years old? Come and share your ideas and see how they compare to others as we map our imagined futures together.

— Intergenerational (mis)communication
Does the year we’re born in change the way we communicate and how do we talk to people who are older or younger than ourselves? In this open workshop we’ll be exploring communication between generations — what works and what needs to change.

— Livecodelab workshop
Using LiveCodeLab learn how to code your own 3D visuals that shape, form and change as you type. This workshop session will be led by visual artist, Antonio Roberts, who will help you create weird and wonderful art on your computer screen.

— Extending the senses
In this workshop, we’ll explore the senses that go beyond the five we’re used to as well as how new technology is helping people replace a sense they’ve lost or even develop entirely new ones. You’ll even get to try out a sense-replacing app that helps blind people navigate a world that’s largely set up for those who can see.

— Sensory play to calm you down
Living in a highly connected world can take its toll. One way we can combat stress is to spend time ‘in our senses’, paying attention to what we’re experiencing. In this workshop, we’ll try out some sensory games to help bring calm to your life, and explore what the brain is doing as we play those games.

— Live coding performance
Electronic music takes breaks new boundaries in the form of algoraves, where musicians and artists respond to new sounds and the live crowd in front of them to create new sounds and visuals using computer coding.

// Talks

— The Peter Pan generation
Does the year we’re born in change the way we communicate and how do we talk to people who are older or younger than ourselves? In this open workshop we’ll be exploring communication between generations — what works and what needs to change.

— An introduction to Unclaimed: The Liminal Space
Curator Hector Dyer talks through the newly opened installation, Unclaimed, by The Liminal Space and how art, science and research can be brought together to present a new perspective on ageing.

— Where is the authentic in the age of technological reproduction?
The constant presence of screens in our day to day lives has firmly embedded artworks into our daily routines. This mass trivialisation of the image challenges traditional notions of authenticity. In discussing the relationship between his paintings and their digital replicas artist Realf Heygate considers whether the work of art’s once cultic status is reaffirmed, or completely disintegrated.

// Art and installations

— Daria Martin: Tonight the World
Artist and Jarman Award 2018 winner Daria Martin revisits dreams and memories from her personal family history to create a complex portrait of migration, loss and resilience.

Come visit on the night and explore atmospheric film and gaming technology.

— Unclaimed: The Liminal Space
Explore this surreal lost property office where you will uncover stories in the most unlikely places.

As a society fixated on youth and agelessness, we tend to ignore an important question about ageing: what will it be like for me? Unclaimed, a new installation by The Liminal Space, puts forward new narratives about ageing. With the help of talking shoes, binoculars that let you see through someone else’s eyes and books that read to you, the often untold stories of what it’s like to grow old in the UK today are brought vividly to life.
