Video call-out to artists of all disciplines (Now closed - 24/10/14)

Fringe Arts Bath (FaB) and Ignite University of Bath are calling out to artists, 

offering the opportunity to reinterpret short presentations by University of Bath researchers to create collaborative video pieces that will highlight both art and science, and how they can work together to engage people in new and exciting ways.

The final outcome is to be presented as short a video piece, in the broadest possible sense of the term. Practitioners from all disciplines are welcome, we are very open to ideas.

After a presentation evening early December (date confirmed asap) at 44AD Artspace including Scientists’ & Artists talks, a screening and drinks, selected video pieces will be showcased over the following days in shop windows around Bath.

The 17 videos of Ignite University of Bath presentations available for artistic reinterpretation can be viewed below
