TRAMPOLINE CELEBRATES 10th ANNIVERSARY WITH A PLATFORM EVENT AND EXHIBITION BY HEATH BUNTING
Thursday 29 November 2007
Trampoline, the East Midlands’ platform event for new media art celebrates its tenth anniversary on Thursday 29 November at Broadway, Nottingham.
Looking back on this decade of new media art, it is clear that digital technologies have become integrated into almost every aspect of everyday life. The theme Surveillance City highlights the critical awareness necessary to cope with an environment where every movement is traceable, recordable and identifiable.
Featuring a dynamic mix of work by regional and international artists including performances, video screenings and installations by Frank Abbott, Michael Pinchbeck, Low Brow Trash and many others.
The Status Project – An A-Z of The System
* exhibition 29 November – 5 December 2007, opening 28 November, 6pm,
Private View 28th 6pm
* psycho-geographic Walk – 29 Nov, 5pm
Alongside the platform event, Broadway will host an exhibition by internationally renowned artist Heath Bunting from 29 November until 5 December, displaying maps and guidebooks of ‘the system’ that he defines as The Status Project. The artist will use these guides to lead members of the public on a walk through the city, demonstrating the links between the variables that determine our social status, from owning a Tesco Club Card to getting on the Electoral Register.
Collected in an online database, the system offers the potential user absurd combinations in the mode of “I am licensed to keep dangerous wild animals. I am able to write in block capitals AND I am insured for public liability.”
