March 20 @ 12:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm
SAM (Sound and Movement) is an interactive experience currently being developed by Diane Wiltshire in collaboration with Horizon, the Mixed Reality Lab and DeNada Dance Theatre. The work aims to translate intangible human interaction into form. It creates a collective, reactive space which is both beautiful and brutal and allows the artist to consider the language of interaction. Ultimately, this creative exploration will lead to the creation of bespoke technology that is both wearable and immersive.
Between 20 – 31 March the public are invited to take part in the development of SAM by participating in the SAM Experiment, and will be asked to ‘donate’ their heartbeat and sweat. The team will gather and analyse the physiological data of the participants and performers as their bodies react to a dynamic environment.
The gallery is open to the public from Wednesday to Saturday when you can visit the current exhibition as well as participate in the SAM Experiment. If you would like to visit on Monday or Tuesday just email email@example.com to book your time or call 0121 643 2617.
