If you have any energy left, you can take part in a show from the anarchic Punk Science and enjoy live music, a drink... and of course some cheese!

Regular contributors to Cybersonica, Boredbrand's Digital Funfair combines new media, dance music, film and stuff found lying around in the street to create an experience which people will remember for a long time. Its empowering media for all the family. Largely funny and occasionally funky. The Digital Funfair is mostly the work of Gavin Morris, Interactive Inventor.

Slade Technology Fayre
Thursday, 7th May 2009
Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square (off Gower Street), London WC1 OAB
Workshop sessions, 11-5pm, Free
Evening event, 5-9pm, Free
Nearest Tube: Euston Square, Russell Square

Open Call: Anybody using technology in an interesting way to make art - or trying to make art!

Loosely modeled around the format of a science fair, Slade Technology Fayre is an informal non-hierarchical event, which seeks to gather skills and experience into the school and escalate the conversation surrounding work that makes use of technology in an interesting way.

At the Fayre all participants are both teachers and learners. Simply, the goal is to present projects or research that have a technological component. The only rule is that at some point along the line the research must have the aspiration to be read as an artwork.

For people used to presenting work in a critical context this is an opportunity to take a step back and share information about the often-invisible activities happening in the computer. For those less engaged with a critical sphere, the Fayre is an opportunity to get involved in a discussion about how the work is operating critically as well as technically.

The Fayre will feature:
- Speed dating- a quick introduction to each participant and their research
- Day-time workshop sessions
- Small group critiques
- A discussion event exploring the role of technology in art practice.
- Stands from useful companies
- An evening free for all.

Examples of the kind of projects you may want to show: Physical Computing, 3D printing, Robotics, Net Art, Novel Projection Methods, Hacking (hardware or software), Lighting, Live Video, Processing, Max/MSP, Isadora...etc etc etc

Email: joe.clark.x@gmail.com with FAYRE in the subject to get involved. All welcome.
