Me_asurement by Tom Schofield and John Bowers

"brings together 21st century face recognition and measurement techniques with 19th century writings on physiognomy, the attempt to read mental ‘faculties’ from an analysis of the face, much like phrenology analyses the overall shape of the skull."[co-commission with The Double Negative]

QWOP Dance by Antonio Roberts with Rachel Sweeney, and music by Alextronic

"Glitch artist Antonio Roberts presents a new aspect to his work exploring error, working in tandem with butoh inflected dance performed by Rachel Sweeney. Computer interface, digital image, human body and choreography are drawn into beautiful maelstrom of system error. The public are invited to join in and excert their own influence over this unwieldy system for control."
