This is an ongoing scalable art project for events, festivals, and galleries which includes:-
WORKSHOPS: This involves a public engagement process creating and writing a manifesto of binary code based gathered from the public. The answers can become customised to your city or specific issue or area of interest. There is already a manifesto made from previous workshops. However the questions can be re-asked in your location and new information and data gathered that informs the project. The concept is to explore and create new futures. How do we create a new world of active ingredients that is politically motivated? . We want you to imagine your future, the future of the planet, the future of politics, the future of the city. We want you to imagine changing the world, your city, yourself.
GRAFFITI: This is an outdoor series of artworks in the city created by the public who get involved in making art in the city. Participants can use the stencils that are already produced . The sites are sourced, permission is asked and chalk spray paint is used so it washes away and is non permanent unless requested. The option here is either to use the stencils I have or create new ones. Creating new stencils involves first having new workshops.
CHOIR: Public spectacle event. A signing choir as a large scale art performance event. I am looking for more events or site specific locations for the choir. Great for opening events and public engagement. The performance can be customised for example the language of the country is happens in. Infact The Binary Graffiti Choir just performed at CYNETART FESTIVAL live on opening night in German. We had a professional choir then 40 members of the audience joined in on stage all singing 10101 and wearing the hoodies. The choir performed in London in March for SHOW IN THE DARK. In Cardiff in April for DIFFUSION (in Welsh) opening the festival and in Poland in May. (In Polish)
CITYWIDE DATA VISUALISATION: Public spectacle event. This custom software tracks everyone. We own our own data in this project that reclaims the data space. See project The Global Derive.
EXHIBITION: of Binary Graffiti Cub material: Large photos. The hoodies, The Manifesto, The Video, The Photos, The Stencils. etc
OTHER public engagement concepts to be discussed with curators. (secret stuff)
BOOK. The images would make a good book. If you want to publish get in touch.
HOODIES. They will be for sale soon...let me know if you want to distribute or bulk buy.
