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 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.
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.
Code:Craft :: January 27 – June 16, 2010 :: Millennium Gallery. Arundel
Gate, Sheffield. S1 2PP.
Lovebytes is supported by Arts Council England.
