German scientist Ernst Chladni (1756-1827) was a pioneer of experimental acoustics. One of his inventions was a technique to study the motions of vibrating metal plates. In this exploration of 'Cymatics', the science of visualising audio frequencies, Bright Side Studios will reveal the visual patterns of audio by experimenting with a Chlandi Plate.

Cycle 15 Alt-w Production Award - KMG

17th February to 13th March 2024.
Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, Edinburgh EH2 2EL

The artist KMG unleashed her multi-eyed character ‘Ken’ onto Aberdeen's Music Hall screen in 2023. Now at the Visual Arts Scotland centenary exhibition the character is seen skateboarding, surfing and riding a fox no less. An unmistakable combination, filled with playful enthusiasm.

KMG's work explores themes ranging from the precarious to the mundane, with often quite subversive results. A weird and wonderful combination of curiosity mixed with utter cynicism leaves her work with a surreal and sarcastic tone. Her belief in the power of accessible art is unshakeable.

This project explores the coastal areas of Scotland where industrial and natural structures have become interwoven. These areas, where life began the evolutionary journey from ocean to land, are at risk due to rising water levels. This anthropogenic impact on the coast is highlighted by the artist via photogrammetry of the emerging assemblages.

Production Awards

Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

The application deadline has now passed.

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 15 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 17th March 2023 at 6pm.
