Lovebytes is a cultural festival for the digital age. A season of 
extraordinary events taking place at some of Sheffield's landmark venues 
and public spaces, from February to June 2010.

The festival opening night takes place at Sheffield's prestigious Winter 
Garden and Millennium Gallery, 6pm Friday 12 February. The event 
features a late night opening of the digital art exhibition Code:Craft 
along with with live performances by Francisco Lopez, Russell Haswell 
and Mark Fell. These events are free admission, open to anyone and 
family friendly.

Lovebytes is an annual international festival of digital art, 
established in 1994, which explores the creative impact of computers, 
new technology and digital culture. The theme for 2010 is 'digital 
craft'; looking at creative digital culture in the context of 
traditional art and craft. Exhibitions include Code:Craft at the Museums 
Sheffield:Millennium Gallery which forms the hub for a programme of 
special events between January and June.

Code:Craft is a new exhibition, curated by Lovebytes in collaboration 
with Museums:Sheffield, which looks at the creative impact of computer 
programming and how artists are utilising 'open source software' to 
produce everything from interactive installations to sculpture. With new 
work by world leaders in this field including C E B Reas, Mehmet Akten 
and Golan Levin, William Ngan, David Dessens, Daniel Widrig and Daniel 
Brown, Code:Craft represents a growing, international community of 
artists who are exploring the fundamental systems of nature, the 
limitations of computers and, perhaps, the future of art and design.
