Future Sessions: SUPERGESTURES

Venue: Bright Building, MSP, Manchester

Sorry, this event has now ended.

Future Sessions: Trust in invisible agents is a unique day, created by FutureEverything, of ideas, art, experiments and workshops exposing the unseen currents of the Internet of Things. 

Art events will include the premiere of SUPERGESTURES, the second CityVerve commissioned artwork by FAULT LINES artist Ling Tan.

Based in Manchester Science Park's brand new state-of-the-art workplace, Future Sessions is the culmination of Every Thing is Connected, a three-day 'conference-as-lab' exploring the findings from local and international Smart City projects. 

An interactive exhibition by FAULT LINES artist, Ling Tan. 

Future Sessions are pleased to host the finale of SUPERGESTURES, a participatory and performative art project co-created with artist Ling Tan and the young people of Manchester, demonstrating their relationship with the city through wearable technology. Stories concerning freedom, pride, technology and ownership of the city are presented through an interactive online platform overlay with existing technology installed in Manchester.

SUPERGESTURES was commissioned by CityVerve in partnership with FutureEverything as part of their FAULT LINES talent development and commissioning programme and responds to the development of smart cities and Internet of Things (IoT).

SUPERGESTURES will be on show at the Bright Building until Friday 30 March, 2018.
