Perception of Colour

Friday 16 May 2014

6.30 – 9.30pm

The Devereux, 20 Devereux Court, London WC2 3JJ

Andrew Hanson, Colour Psychophysicist, National Physical Laboratory
David Batchelor, Artist
Dr Sheena Calvert, Chair

Psychophysicist Andrew Hanson and artist David Batchelor will be looking at the perception of colour from the perspectives of two very different practices. David's work comprises three-dimensional structures, photographs, paintings and drawings, and mostly relates to a long term interest in colour and urbanism. His talk will look at aspects of colour and the city - and colour and darkness in particular. Andrew Hanson is a psychophysicist at the National Physical Laboratory specialising in the measurement of colour. His talk will highlight what scientists think colour is, how we specify and measure it, and the variety of its perception in different environmental and observer conditions. Chairperson Dr Sheena Calvert's knowledge of colour brings a further perspective, having studied colour systems at Yale University, and she is interested in its philosophical aspects.

£6.50 students (£7.50 full price) in advance at Eventbrite
£7.50 students (£9.00 full price) on the door – subject to availability,

Screening of Stuart Hall Project

20th March 2014, 18:00.
LVMH Lecture Theatre E002
Central St Martins
Granary Building
Kings Cross

Stuart Hall changed the Art School, offering a new interpretation of cultural studies that has informed much critical practice for over 30 years. This absorbing documentary from director John Akomfrah (The Nine Muses, Handsworth Songs) presents an intimate and engaging portrait of Stuart Hall, the Jamaican-born public intellectual and co-founder of the New Left Review, whose work in the field of cultural theory has profoundly influenced the academic landscape. Using extensive footage of Hall's appearances on radio and television, the film explores its themes of memory, race and identity through the juxtaposition of events from Hall's life, and a discourse on the wider social and political events of the second half of the twentieth century, all set against a soundtrack by Hall's favourite musician, Miles Davis.

I think you need to sign up here if you are interested!

Hopefully see you there :)


United Visual Artists: Momentum

13 Feb - 1 June 2014, Barbican

Our internal model of time, movement, mass and space is based on a lifetime of experience, perhaps even genetically encoded. What happens when we build a new model? What happens when we bend the rules?' UVA

United Visual Artists invites you to experience Momentum, a carefully choreographed sequence of light, sound and movement, which responds to the unique space of the Curve.

Momentum consists of twelve pendulums that activate light and sound as they swing, drawing attention to the Curve’s vast arc, inviting you to journey through the space guided by your heightened senses. Each pendulum has been meticulously designed and built using steel, aluminium, and custom electronics. The sound is individual to each pendulum, prepared and tuned to seamlessly resonate as they move within the Curve.

Momentum creates an environment that has its foundations in detailed research, sophisticated computer technology and mechanical expertise. Yet, the effect is to create a space that feels wondrously transformed, one which you are invited to experience and explore.

Xavi sez:
Hi guys. I was thinking that could be interesting to use a hashtag on twitter to share references, inspiration. I usually do it in agencies and it is a good tool to discover new things.
My proposal is to use #INSPFAD (Inspiration Fine Art Digital) to share references, curious things, artists and general inspiration.
I hope it will help.



As part of Everything Wants to Run, this Friday at 7pm Block 336 presents Ambit, a debut sound performance by Erik Nyström and Peiman Khosravi. There will be an opportunity to see the exhibition before and after the performance.

Ambit is a site-specific sound installation event that explores visuospatial imagery evoked by the apparent physicality of sound material. Projected sonic images will liquefy the surfaces and boundaries of the room, as if it were an elastic topology. Thus a mutable world of illusory spaces will emerge and transcend the geometry of the listening environment – bringing into consciousness the tension between 'here and now' and a universe extending beyond.

“Space is a myth, a ghost, a fiction for geometers.”—James J. Gibson

The Digital Subconscious IA Forum on Art, Technology and Global Society

external image Riley_Versions.jpg

The Digital Subconscious is a critical forum that seeks to ask key [[#|questions]] about the relationship between art, technology and philosophy. How has the soft architecture of the digital and virtual sphere affected the manner in which we choose to engage with the world? How have our formal relationships to art, music, and cinema changed over the last decade? Collectively, how has the ‘digital’ affected our sub (consciousness)?
Comprising a series of talks and provocations from writers, psychologists, curators and artists, this event will consider how social interplay on the web and across the digital sphere affects ethical, political and legal concerns. At the same time, this forum also seeks to consider wider [[#|questions]] about how our memories are constructed, produced, and recalled, in an age, where nothing is ever lost.

More info:

The SU (Student's Union) invite all Camberwell students to their Living London event, featuring activities, stalls and lectures designed to welcome new students to UAL and London life.
Come along and [[#|meet new]] people, hear about important services and how to get to grips with University life.

Wednesday 2 October 16.00-19.00 in the college canteen Peckham Road

go to this at 16.00 for 1 hour then you can go to Chelsea College of Art & Design for an interesting lecture:

'Recent philosophical discussions around “new materialism” acknowledge that digital culture, which was once considered immaterial, forms as much a part of our authentic aesthetic experience as anything else. When everything can be considered as matter, and when materiality underlies all cultural practice, how can we start to articulate the specificities and nuances of objects again, be they digital or otherwise?'
