artist talk by boredomresearch, thursday 6.30pm, george's house gallery, folkestone

Collaborating as boredomresearch, Southampton based Vicky Isley and Paul Smith have gained an international reputation for interrogating the creative role of computing. boredomresearch often think of themselves as employing computer gaming technology to create landscape paintings and life studies that move. Many of their works have been created using modelling techniques similar to those used by scientists to study naturally occurring phenomena. However their aim is to create something new of intrigue and beauty.

Currently they are both Research Lecturers in Computer Animation & Computer Art at the National Centre of Computer Animation, Bournemouth University UK. They are represented by [DAM] Berlin and are ArtsSway Associates.

boredomresearch will talk about their portfolio of projects including the works currently in Georges House Gallery - RealSnailMail and newly comissioned AspirationStorm . They will discuss their approach to creating engaging digital artworks, how they develop themes and cross boundaries between science, art and technology. All their artwork is computer generated and includes interactive artworks, public artworks, online projects/environments, prints and generative objects which have been shown both nationally and internationally.

Places are free but limited, so please call 01303 244533 or email to book your place. Please let anyone know about the talk who you think would be interested in coming along.

This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when we first moved here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
