The chronoscope is designed to not only tell the time but also convey how, why and what time really is. As each slender slither of time bursts into being, the chronoscope gauges the exact nature of that particular moment and visualises it. (It is no wonder that the chronoscope sometimes runs a little slow.)

Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, Edinburgh EH2 2EL

Motifs from the realm of neoclassical architecture dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are brought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.

Through a combination of 3D rendering, augmented reality, motion tracking and performance, this work superimposes an interactive sculptural form in the space directly behind the Music Hall screen, which itself becomes a window into a virtual realm, that's both uncanny and otherworldly.

Museum for Islamic Art, HaPalmach St 2, Jerusalem

Coinciding with a sister installation at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem, these dynamic interpretations of Paisley pattern are inspired by both the iconic design and the prized freshwater pearl mussel that used to thrive in the White Cart river running through Paisley town. Each unique, generative form has been specially seeded for Aberdeen.

Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

Initiated in Dundee by Scottish Screen, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.

The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.

Cycle 14 of the fund will commission and curate work for presentation on the 4.5m high LED screen that welcomes every visitor to the refurbished Music Hall in Aberdeen. The deadline for applications is the 28th February 2022 at 6pm.

Our curatorial focus is two-fold, long-form generative work that's infinite and algorithmic in nature, or short-form looping animation. Both should be silent and have immediacy for presentation in a transient space with a limited dwell time.

This opportunity is for both new or existing work. Lead applicants for a new commission should be based in Scotland but can collaborate with anyone from anywhere. Applications for existing work can be from anywhere.

The deadline has now passed.
