Join us for our Error & Power Exhibition Launch and Zoom Preview this FRIDAY, the 12th June at 5:30 PM!

The theme of the residency dealt with the artistic strategy of creating space for chance, unintentional mistakes and errors to occur and to shape the artist’s work. This residency was an opportunity for our two artists, Naho Matsuda and Neale Willis to explore the relationship between their practice and error – deliberate or accidental. We particularly want to look at technological error – the glitch, the hack, the syntax error – in media arts practice and political activism, as a response to the pervasive power of technology, and its acts of control, regulation, prevention, its power to both liberate and enslave its users.

This Friday we will be launching the exhibition, including their body of work that they have developed over the month and hope to celebrate, chat and experience our first exhibition preview online. Do bring your own nibbles and drinks!

A bit more about our Artists In Residence

Her work includes; print, publications, writing, installation and performance. Naho holds a part-time post as a research assistant and tutor in the design department at Goldsmiths University.

Neale Willis is particularly interested in creating conflict between what enters the machine and what leaves it. He manipulates data to create ambiguities within the certainties of the digital realm, breeding uncertainty from the usually reassuring definite of binary data and letting repetition and replication take form as rhythm from the space in-between the known and unknown.
