In production with Lighthouse and the Open Rights Group, Brighton Cryptofestival was a day of talks, workshops and activities on practical privacy, surveillance and censorship. Storyteller & Technologist Natalie Kane, attended (and learned how to encrypt her email).
Adding to the news of Orbit Ever After winning the Grand Prix at Encounters in September and being nominated by the festival for the European Film Awards, we’re delighted to announce a further three BFI Shorts festival wins, plus a BIFA nomination.
We sent a small Lighthouse team to Rhizome’s Seven on Seven, to find out the new, and innovative ways that creative technologists and artists are thinking about digital culture. Storyteller and Technologist Natalie Kane, details the day's events.
Lighthouse Studio is the new interdisciplinary residency programme we’re developing. We’ll be hosting practitioners from the digital culture world, and other creatives, to catalyse new work and collaborations that will enrich our future programmes. Our Creative Producer, Andrew Sleigh, gives us a recap of the first phase of prototyping.
A stimulating day of talks at TEDxBrighton, by Storyteller & Technologist Natalie Kane.
This year Lighthouse was proud to sponsor TEDxBrighton, a one-day conference featuring a range of inspiring and innovative speakers with a connection to Brighton. Hosted at the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, the conference included speakers from a variety of backgrounds, interests, disciplines and perspectives, whose talks focused on legacy, and what we are passing on to future generations.
Adam Rutherford: HELIX – a different way of looking at DNA
Helix tells the history of DNA from the perspective of a 500-year-old man kept alive by genetic therapy, with a story spanning 40,000 years – from ancient chimera, to modern-day spider goats, to speculated future human beings. Adam Rutherford tells us about his involvement with the project, alongside collaborators David Blandy and Daniel Locke and his interest in these biological (and hip-hop) remixes.
