As part of its ‘As Yet Impossible’ series of lectures, the University is pleased to welcome art duo igloo to MediaCityUK to talk about their past, current and future projects, which deal primarily with figure and landscape. Special attention is given to experience – a kinosphir – a new methodology of giving audiences immersive experiences using a variety of techniques including game engine visualisations, motion capture, touch interfaces and stereo projections to convey imagery derived from and relating to the Skinner Releasing dance technique.
Based in London, Ruth Gibson and Bruno Martelli work together as igloo. Their practice examines figure and landscape and the relationship between natural and artificial, transposing sites to create ambiguous topographies. They create environments, installations and performances using a wide variety of media including print, video, and computer games. Their first work together won them a BAFTA nomination and their work has featured in numerous exhibitions and festivals including the 52nd Venice Biennale.
Arrival drinks will be served from 6.00pm ahead of the presentation at 6.30pm, followed by a Q&A session. The evening ends at 8.00pm.
Admission is free.
