Whilst we can't host The Sessions which you've come to know and love in the usual sense right now, we've curated a collection of our top picks of fitness classes and creative workshops which our trusted partners are streaming from their home to yours.
We want to bring you, your friends and loved ones together through creative, unique events, streamed directly to you in the safety of your own home. We’re working on extending our programme right now, so if there’s a particular type of event you’d love to join during lockdown, let us know here.
Archive and Process Part 2 with Jason Bruges Studio
Jason Bruges, creator of the Variegation Index installation in 20 Triton Street, has been delving into his archive to rediscover some of the Studio's most intriguing experiments and prototypes. He has unearthed everything from digital water lilies with their own underwater ecosystem to kinetic bubbles inspired by the mechanics of extendable mopsand.
You can hear more about his discoveries in Achive and Process Part 2, an insightful webinar exploring the themes of transparency and illusion.
Wednesday 8th July at 5pm via Zoom.
About Jason Bruges
Jason Bruges is internationally renowned as a pioneer of the hybrid space between art, architecture and technology. His artworks are site-specific, 'sculptural barometers' that tap into the emotional tapestry of a community or place by translating live feedback into living, breathing spatial interventions.
A master of light and kinetic art, Jason combines his architectural knowledge with a high-tech, mixed media palette to explore spectacle, time-based artworks and a dynamic immersive experience. His installations are moments of theatre that transform in response to their surrounds and connect people with their environments. In 2002, Jason set up Jason Bruges Studio where he works with a talented team of architects, engineers, computational designers, creative technologists and project managers to deliver integrated public art project world-wide.
