Discover THE NATURE OF REALITY for just £5.
Hack Circus: THIS IS REALITY will take place at Sheffield's Site Gallery on the evening of Saturday the 15th of March. Drink beer, listen to interesting talks and performances, learn about magic, music and machines and meet interesting people.
The second issue of Hack Circus will be launched at the event.
What makes you so sure you're not just a brain in a jar? How do you conjure up a fictional world with real technology and vice versa? Are synthetic humans about to do for us what ZX Spectrum emulators did for Sir Clive Sinclair? What's the deal with site-specific theatre? Why do people like model railways? Who are you and how did you get into my house?
Speakers and performers addressing these sorts of issues on the night will include:
Heather Fenoughty – composer and sound designer
Ralph Harrington – writer, historian, volcano enthusiast and much more
Alex McLean and Kate Sicchio – live coding/dance performance
Sinead McDonald – Dublin-based artist interested in portraiture and identity (and making amazing machines)
Henry Cooke – creative developer of bots with personality
& more tbc.
You'll have the opportunity to buy the first and second issue of Hack Circus magazine at the event.
All the videos of the previous Hack Circus event (TIME TRAVEL LIVE) are on our YouTube channel: http://uk.youtube.com/hackcircus
Early booking strongly advised, spaces are limited for that cosy salon feel.
