Fish Island Labs: Interfaces

Tuesday 25 August 2015

Neon light kitchens and data walking, virtual reality immersions and digital interactions – so that’s what happens when you put creative talent from the worlds of art and technology together in a warehouse in Hackney’s Fish Island.

In partnership with The Trampery, Fish Island Labs was created as a unique new centre to kickstart the careers of a new generation of emerging talent whose work spans technology and the art. Populated by a diverse community of 50 emerging practitioners, all pushing creative boundaries and exploring new technology, for 12 months, our residents have been developing new work, covering everything from sculpture, installations and physical performance to coding, film editing and digital art.

Drawing the year to an end, Fish Island Labs presented their inaugural group showcase – Interfaces – transforming our Foyers into a playground of electronic innovation, demonstrating what happens when art and technology work together.

Interfaces took place on 21–23 August 2015.
