Info about BOM’s Spring Programme:
“Birmingham’s newest creative collaborative workspace will be turned into a pop up laboratory this spring as BOM (Birmingham Open Media) launches its second major programme, Live: R&D.
Following the success of BOM’s launch programme with the Chaos Computer Club, Europe’s largest network of hackers, the Live: R&D programme will showcase the work of BOM’s ten inaugural Fellows who will be in residence throughout the year.
From artists innovating with darkroom chemicals to a biochemist’s re-invention of a failed project with NASA, the BOM Fellows bring a diverse set of skills and practices blurring the boundaries between art, technology and science.
Between 9 March – 30 April BOM’s Gallery & Events Space will become a hub of DIY-biology and adventures with creative technologies. The Fellows will test out ideas in development in front of a public audience, sharing their current research in talks and workshops as well as live Skype sessions with international creative practitioners to develop future collaborations.
Legendary electro-musician and producer DMX Krew will be performing with the Fellows on Easter Friday (3 April) in a spectacular live music and visuals event.
