-- 22 MARCH with IGLOOIgloo is an award winning British art collective interested in the visual and kinaesthetic applications of the computer, who develop their own software tools and methods of working and presenting. Igloo's methodologies for combining creative art forms bring theatrical experiences to new audiences, while they aim to create new methods of interaction, blurring the boundaries between spectator and participator.
They say:"It is important for us to innovate rather than adapt. To experiment with different formats & new methods of interaction. We take many risks with each new artwork (...). We believe in growing pieces rather than designing them, exploring ideas of being in other peoples stories, allowing audiences to join the dots, providing libraries of motion for play & provoking imagination so that certain things can be left unsaid."
Visit www.igloo.org.uk/ --THE THURSDAY CLUB is an open forum discussion group for anyone interested in the theories and practices of cross-disciplinarity, interactivity, technologies and philosophies of the state-of-the-art in today’s (and tomorrow’s) cultural landscape(s).
