Collusion 2019: An exploration of emerging technology through extraordinary art

Date:Fri 12 - Mon 22 Apr
Time:Mon-Sat 11am – 7pm | Sun 11am – 5pm
Venue:Cambridge Leisure Park

From the 12th to 22nd of April 2019, visitors to the area outside Cambridge Junction will find a series of specially built pavilions designed by architect Charles Holland. Inside these structures, they’ll encounter six interactive and immersive artworks that explore our relationship with emerging technology.

Pieces include 2030, a party set in a 2030 home hosted by a virtual assistant; Datacosm, a multi-narrative film driven by live music and artificial intelligence; Doomsday Blockchain, a memorial to the 21st century that broadcasts hidden messages excavated from the Bitcoin blockchain; TEO, an AI-driven personal-avatar creation device; Above the Surface, a look at our relationship with material consumption through the lens of augmented reality; and immersive film My fingers distended as honey dripped from your lips and we danced in a circular motion, a dance recorded and performed in 360° video that reorients and disorients viewers in relationship to others’ bodies and their own.

Participating artists Jo Lawrence, Crowded Room, Adham Faramawy, DDBC (led by Christian Nold & James Stevens), Above&Below, and Henry Driver & Barbara Dougan were all commissioned by Collusion to create these pieces for the April 2019 showcase as the culmination of our three-year in_collusion programme of work.
