Our brand new media arts website provides new ways for you to visit and get involved :-)
We believe that through creative and critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are inspired and enabled to become active co-creators of their cultures and societies.
Furtherfield – a Short Film by Pete Gomes.
Film and video artist Pete Gomes has created a new film about the artist-led online community Furtherfield. Featuring interviews with
Furtherfield co-directors Ruth Catlow and Marc Garret as well as artists, techies, games theorists and users of Furtherfield platforms, the short film captures a dynamic networking collective working across technology, social change and art.
“The generation of artists who first encountered the internet inevitably all came from other disciplines. The desire to explore this new medium shifted them away from making products and the commercial art markets towards looking at information and organisation, influenced by an interest in systems thinking and cybernetic ideas. This short shows Furtherfield has continued those early approaches and begins a process of attempting to explain those ideas.” – Pete Gomes
