*AlgoMech - Festival of Algorithmic and Mechanical Movement*


11th November 2017
Old Post Hall, Sheffield Institute of Arts

This symposium puts forward Unmaking as a form of resistance. The taking
apart of technology - whether algorithmic or mechanic - is a step in
reaching new understanding, whether cultural, historical, or technical. The
focus on movement in this process, for example through choreographic,
musical, textile, or political action, provides common language for
discussion across disciplines. The symposium is convened by the PENELOPE
project, where the mythological figure of Penelope from Ancient Greece
provides a universal paradigm of unmaking.

Registration: £17.50 including lunch.
