Tuesdays 4 Sept & 11 Sept, 2pm-7pm at the Lab for the Recently Possible. Free entry.
Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) is a one night exhibition for artists and their projectors; a riot of light, colour, sound and movement. The idea is simple: find a place, invite artists, ask them to bring projectors. There are no limits to the projections: DIY videos, generative art, anything.
In mid-September, a BYOB night will be held inside the warren of underground tunnels and chorus rooms beneath the Brighton Dome, as well as the Concert Hall (organised by somewhereto_ and Pop-up Brighton). In preparation, Lab for the Recently Possible (L4RP) is holding two 'Lab Days' - a chance to get together with other artists and makers to edit video montages, create computer art and let the imagination fly.
These events are free and run from 2pm - 7pm at the Lab (pop in at any time). Please sign up to show your interest:
The main BYOB event will be on Sunday, 16th September at Brighton Dome.
BYOB is a way of making a huge show with zero budget. It is an exploration of the medium of projection.
Today, the Web is confined to screens. Tomorrow, information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether. A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable projection, the realm of experience quickly expands.
Projection can mean many things. Projections are very flexible and create a freedom to react to each others works, move things around, and create a dynamic collaborative experience.
Events are self-organising and have been held in many countries and cities worldwide.
