Digital Art Festival: VELOCITY

I have not mentioned about “VELOCITY” as a digital art festival organised by Folly based in Lancaster. This festival has already started on 11th October and continues till 3rd November. It is particularly unique that the different venues including platforms, night clubs, art galleries, and museums are on coastal rail route around Morecambe Bay from Manchester to Barrow in Furness. So, people can enjoy traveling by the train on the beautiful coast.

In the festival, the diverse of art works are shown such as digital interactive installations, single screen video showings, performances, fireworks & bonfires, sound works, online works, workshops, etc. Some of works are only one day events.
VELOCITY is the most major digital art festival in U.K. Although FACT has been opened recently which is also focusing on digital art and moving images. I visited there when I went to Liverpool at the last weekend.



Seiko Mikami, a media artist and associate professor of Tama Art University, who I have met in Barrow, when she was installing her work in Dock Museum. She is also participating to show her digital interactive installation as a part of VELOCITY. As I said before, I did not expect she would have come in the festival herself, either would have worked in Dock Museum. It was a big surprise, but I am pleased to see her in Barrow after a long time. She came specially to see the exhibition and artist studios at ArtGene. And I also visited the opening reception at Lantern House in Ulverston on 12th October. It was a nice to meet and chat with my good friend in Barrow.


Her work, “Desire of Codes” is consist of sixty wall-mounted digital mechanic pieces which are controlled by IC chips installed on the behind wall. When people come to see the work, the pieces are responded by human motions both horizontal and vertical, and distances between the mechanics and human bodies. The piece of the mechanics has LED on the top. It has the sound like jig jig jig jig…, when it is moving in order to follow the people’s motions in the dark room. While she was working in the museum, she has got many reactions from audience. Therefore, she has got offer to extend the schedule of her exhibition much longer than VELOCITY. The Dock Museum is happy to have got her robotic installation and they have decided to hold the robotic event for children visitors. It is a good encouragement for museum activities and exciting response to the art work.
