‘BackSlash: An Electronic Art Exhibition & Artists Residency’

7 September 1996 — 4 November 1996

BackSlash, Castlefield Gallery’s first experimental electronic art project, sets out to explore and showcase the spectrum of today’s electronic art practice in the North West of England. Combining the production and presentation of creative uses of technology, backslash examines the changing nature of our visual culture as a result of the computer.

TweEQ, an eight week artists residency by The i0 Projects, facilitates an interface between electronic artists, live performers, audio designers and cultural practitioners with the wider public. New York will be developed through a series of hands on technology-based workshops and presented at pHatt, a live multi media transmission.

Perpetual Motion by Chris Meigh-Andrews develops the artist’s use of electronic images of flow to parallel human thought processes and to convey a physical ‘participatory’ experience. Since 1989 Chris Meigh-Andrews has been specialising in sculptural video installations, shown both in the UK and abroad. Perpetual Motion is Chris Meigh-Andrews’s first exhibition in the North West.
