0.1% exhibition at NAVEL




As part of the upcoming program 0.1% organized by Dr.Yewande Pearse, NAVEL is looking for artworks, texts, as well as scientific projects that demystify how genomics inform identity. We are looking for artworks, ranging from sculpture and 2D work to video, film, text, sound, performance, AR/VR, immersive and/or participatory projects, that address the sociopolitical and/or psychological implications of readily available genetic information.

Our DNA – the script of our lives – is 99.9% the same across the human species. But differences in the remaining 0.1% hold important clues to who we are as individuals – a reality that begat the “quantified self” movement. The movement, also known as lifelogging, describes the trend towards using technology to acquire data on aspects of a person’s daily life, with the goal of improving physical, mental, and/or emotional performance.

Genetic information acquired by consumer testing companies like 23andMe can illuminate inner resources and limitations, functioning as a kind of oracle into the secrets of our bodies, identities and individualities. Still, many questions remain unanswered in regards to the impact of such inquiry on notions of the self and the socio-political.

0.1% explores what it means to uncover the genetic roots of who we are and who we could be. This week-long program demystifies how genomics inform identity, with an exhibition of works selected through an open call, the release of a Massive x NAVEL collaborative zine, an installation by neuroscientist and philosopher Dan Lloyd, discussions of scientific papers, and talks by influential figures whose work grows in the delta where hard science meets the arts.

Xsection Film Festival 2019 Open Call






SEEKING SCREENDANCES for Xsection Film Festival

Xsection: A Dance and Science Film Festival sparking interdisciplinary collaboration between dance - science - film.

The methodologies of scientific research and dance creation are abstract. Films can document visual forms and create a tangible record of these concepts. The vision of XSFF is to archive the expression of current scientific findings and instigate with dancemakers on topical scientific issues - space exploration - medical advancements- fundamental principles. The platform is open to interpretation as long as artists are collaborating across disciplines of science and dance.

A night of interdisciplinary mingling.

Dates: 20-22 February 2019
Funding: Fee £600 with additional costs for travel, accommodation and materials
Deadline for applications: 12pm, Monday 5th November 2018

We believe that science and technology will not only shape the future of energy production and our environment: the arts have a role to play in shaping our responses and imagination. ‘Power Up’ is an exhibition of workshops and films aimed at children aged 7-12 years old, which examines how our use of energy impacts our planet. We are inviting proposals to deliver a workshop during Brighton Science Festival that responds to these themes and shows how art can help bring change and awareness.
