Fish Island Labs: Interfaces

Processing reality through art and technology

21 - 23 August 2015 / 18:00, 12:00


From interactive portraits to virtual reality technology, atmospheric realities to enlightening data visualisations – explore the world that emerges when art and technology collide.

Interfaces is the first annual showcase of art from Fish Island Labs, an incubator set up in collaboration with The Trampery to kickstart the careers of a new generation of emerging talent whose work spans technology and the arts.

Over the past 12 months, this community of 20 practitioners have developed cutting-edge new work, covering everything from sculpture, installations and physical performance to coding, film editing and digital art – and now they’re taking over the Barbican Foyers.

Together, these artists take a diverse approach to interrogating how human experience can be transformed by multi-media art practice.

Artists include:

Annie Nichols
David Hunter
Enamul Hoque
Fancy Lamp
Imeh Akpan
Magma Collective
Martin Collins
Matteo Zamagni
Nicola Plant
Pollie Barden
Sapphire Goss
Something Human
Sophie Rogers
