Tuesday’s side splitting catch up day in Lewes with Short Circuit artists Chisato Minamimura, Dave Packer and Dolly Sen left locals in the park a bit bemused!

At times a bit more Benny Hill than @DigitalBrighton – this was so much more than your usual Lewisian caper. Intrigued? Well, you’d be daft to not get yourself down to our Lighthouse@BDF2013 event Tuesday next at 6pm – a must see warmup to the @BDF2013 Chuckle event at Komedia round the corner, straight after.

Short Circuit – trailer released!

All things Short Circuit might have seemed quiet over the summer, but only on the surface. Behind the scenes people have been collaborating, critiquing and creating – just take a look at the Short Circuit video trailer:

And then get planning your trip to the seaside – we are showcasing work as part of Brighton Digital Festival on the 10th September (6pm, at Lighthouse).

Want to know what it might be like if the internet had a breakdown? Check out the work of mixed media artist Dolly Sen. How music might be mapped to create new accessible, choreographic forms?  Look at the results of the collaboration between choreographer Chisato Minamimura and animator Dave Packer of Sheep Films. Want to collect audio-visual souvenirs of a city sonifying locations through walking and imagining the linked sound memories? Experience film maker Caroline Ward’s extracts from her collaboration with Anya Ustaszewski and Dave Mee of Madlabs. Hidden, hiding, open or exposed? Visual artist Jon Adams reports on his feral investigations, using his experiences of Aspergers and dyslexia to tap into the hidden treats of Mozilla.

We are salivating already, but then we’ve had a few sneaky peaks over the summer – and over the next few days we’ll treat you to some teasers too. And then see you at the sea-side?
