As Yet Impossible Presents: Igloo

Kinosphir – she’s lost control

University of Salford
Salford Quays
M50 2HE

FREE – Registration Required

The University is pleased to welcome Igloo to MediaCityUK to talk about their past/current & future projects – which deal primarily with figure & landscape. Special attention is given to experience – a kinosphir – a new methodology of giving audiences immersive experiences using a variety of techniques including game engine visualisations, motion capture, haptic interfaces & stereo projections to convey imagery derived from & relating to the Skinner Releasing dance technique.

Based in London, Ruth Gibson and Bruno Martelli work together as igloo. Their practice examines figure and landscape and the relationship between natural and artificial, transposing sites to create ambiguous topographies. They create environments, installations and performances using a wide variety of media including print, video, and computer games. Their first work together won them a BAFTA nomination and their work has featured in numerous exhibitions and festivals including the 52nd Venice Biennale.

Arrival drinks will be served from 6pm ahead of the presentation at 6.30pm, followed by a Q&A session, evening ends 8pm.
