“Taking this idea as a starting point, we would like you to interpret this principle”

Sustain your errors, is a series of workshops and performances re-interpreting a set of ideas by artist and musician David Cunningham first used for his 1976 vinyl LP Grey Scale.

In an introduction to the project for NEoN Digital Arts Festival, curator/writer Cicely Farrer invites artist Katie Hare to together explore and test the ‘error system’ in the algorithmic age, through dialogue, sound, projection and movement.

Katie Hare is an artist whose work examines the effects of the increasing rapidity of technological progress, particularly with regards to memory and obsolescence and the way narrative and storytelling is shifting as a result of this development. Cicely Farrer is a curator and writer examining methodologies for curating and interpreting performance.

The project will continue with a free series of intensive workshops on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 November at the Vision Building, Greenmarket in Dundee. Workshop facilitators include movement artist Saffy Setohy and musician and media archivist Adam Lockhart.

Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland and NEoN Digital Arts Festival.
