Toy Hack Digital Metropolis

Phoenix Brighton received a Brighton Digital Festival Education Award to work with Alex May and Exploring Senses who created a two day workshop for thirty 13-19 year olds to hack toys, build a cardboard city for them to live in, create animations about them, and finally use Alex’s video mapping software to create a digital metropolis.

The workshop and final exhibition took place over the 18th and 19th of September 2015 in the main gallery of Phoenix Brighton.

Emergency Index: Volume 3

Alex’s Painting With Light performance at Tate Modern is featured in the amazing latest edition of Emergency Index.

“While we argue about what performance documentation might mean, every year countless performances are lost to history. In book form, Emergency Index attempts to capture a broad snapshot of the “state of the field” of performance, as it exists right now, and as described by artists themselves. Volume 3 is here, with more than 700 pages documenting hundreds of recent performances across unexpected genres and from all over the world. This is an amazing resource for scholars, teachers, appropriators, artists, nihilists and anyone making performance.”
