SenseBus―An Art and Robotics Group project
Remembering in states of you,
the feeling of your bright light sound wave,
like a shaking timber.
Together we make a song to filter light and bathe.
Changing, resting, disappearing.
SenseBus is a collaboratively built, interactive sensory environment. There is no central "brain." There are no screens, mice or keyboards. Using the type of microprocessors found in washers and dryers, the SenseBus system circulates sense information within a distributed network of sensory modules.

Tactile Video―An exhibition of interactive video installation art conceived and coordinated by Jeff Mann
Ephemeral visions – thirty apparitions per second – trying to get in touch... can interactive video cross over from cyberspace into material reality? Spectres of light with animalistic awareness, ubiquitous presence, sensation, impression, embraceable tactility. Would you rather point and click, or dance and kiss?

Touch:Touche―Daniel Jolliffe and Thecla Schiphorst. Curated by Nina Czegledy
Interactivity and electronic art are phrases that the public generally associates with intimidating high-tech gear, but there's nothing inaccessible or unnecessarily complicated about Touch:Touché. Sensual, visual and directly involving, each piece allows the viewer to engage, and enjoy, on a number of levels from the immediate and tactile to the more intellectual. This exhibition of works by Thecla Schiphorst and Daniel Jolliffe embodies the essence of interactive art as it explores issues of presence, perception, movement and control.

Organic Mechanics―Victoria Scott and Simone Jones
Organic Mechanics is an exhibition of sculptural installations by Victoria Scott and Simone Jones, two promising young artists who share an interest in the resonance between the organic and the artificial.
Astute observers of kinetic motion, these two artists make works that are powerful and visceral reminders of our bodies' need for protection, stimulation and expression. At the same time, each artist displays a sensitivity towards the needs and the intelligence of their creations.
