Lighting up Brighton

Carla Rapoport

No time to waste - there's still a few more days to catch Lumen's 2017 Winners show as part of the Brighton Digital Festival at The University of Brighton on Edward St. It's been a heady few weeks for the show and we've been delighted with the numbers of visitors to see the Lumen works on display - including Slide to Expose's own teenage bedroom complete with Augmented Reality triggers, the winking and whirring of Nemesis Machine by Stanza, the artificial intelligence work FRANK that wants to talk to you and the arcade game like not other, Abstract Playground API. We're particularly pleased to be partnering with Cyland Media Labs of St Petersburg which contributed the work pictured above - "0" - an interactive work which has delighted visitors thoughout the show. Also on display is a show reel of selected video works and the stunning Block Bills, winner of the 2017 Lumen Prize Still Image award.

The festival, of course, is still bursting with other great digital activities so a trip to Brighton (55 minutes from Victoria for Londoners) is a must for lovers of all things digital. Lumen remains open 12-5pm today, tomorrow and Friday - hope you can make it!

Shows like this take an enormous amount of organising, cajoling, persistance and imagination so just to add our grateful thanks to Brighton Digital Festival Organiser Laurence Hill and festival coordinator Melissa Ray for making this magic happen.
