Four words: technology

    Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


    Some scientists believe that at the foundation of our 'reality' might in fact be numbers and, if so, the likelihood they suggest is that it will be the number four. FOUR WORDS: TECHNOLOGY brings together professionals and visual art students from Leeds Beckett University to think about our broader relationship with technology in only four words, each animated over thirty seconds to an exclusive soundtrack composed by Scanner. Other contributors to the project include a long-term member of the pioneering electronic band Kraftwerk, the founder of the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology, sound engineers ARUP, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, East Street Arts, Leeds United Supporters' Trust and students from Leeds Beckett's MA Art & Design and undergraduate Fine Art and Graphic Arts and Design courses. FOUR WORDS: TECHNOLOGY will remain in situ for three months, kick-starting a new curatorial programme for Leeds and is also part of an ongoing series of billboard and screen works considering the relationship between the everyday and the avant-garde.
