About the Artist/Exhibition
An exhibition of Techy Art at the Williamson Art Gallery by young people at Birkenhead Central Library.
uring the summer, Wirral Libraries held a “techy art
” programme on the theme of destiny following a visit from Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore, Britain’s most popular comedy writing and performing double act for young people.
The programme had 4 workshops in which the young people produced the following art work.
- Workshop 1 explored different creative mediums and processes to produce an interactive storyboard with bare conductive touch boards, interactive drawings, paper electronics and smart inks.
- Workshop 2 participants recorded a soundscape about their own destiny and the future, with ceramic plaques being co-created with the artist.
- Workshop 3 created an interactive destiny banner, made of textiles and electronic components. It uses NFC tags so that visitors to the exhibition can scan the tags with their mobile devices for web-links.
- Workshop 4 was a photographic adventure in which young people produced photographs to represent their own destiny, via analogue and digital processes.
The programme was funded and supported by Arts Council England, Friends of Birkenhead Central Library, The Williamson and Wirral Council.
The exhibition – Saturday 21st October-Sat 19th Nov then moving to Birkenhead Library.
