#HADADi - Helix Arts Digital Artists' Drop-in

#HADADi presented fascinating work crossing the boundaries of arts and tech this February at Campus North in Newcastle. We were delighted to see project sketches from: Artist David Goard, Innovator Catherine Johns (Southpaw Dance Company), Historian Dr Ben Houston (Newcastle University), Artist Lalya Gaye, Maker Alastair Mcdonald, and Startup engineer James Rutherford.

Catherine Johns (Southpaw Dance Company Company Manager) outlined their recent Creative Fuse North East Innovation Award. The award will help the company research how they can best use technology to drive their dance narratives. Read all about it here.

Dr Ben Houston (Newcastle University) explained Not as it is Written, an app and international exhibition which centres on the lives of African Americans in Pittsburgh during the civil rights movement. You can download the app ‘Not As It is Written’ to see the archive of captivating photos and oral histories here (ios) and here (android).

Lalya Gaye (Attaya Projects) chatted about ridding herself of all her hardware and utilising both the mobility and tactility of her tablet. She also shared her current experimentations in electronic music through coding her tablet to work as a sound engine. To learn more about Lalya's work check her website here.

If that sounded interesting then we hope to see you at an upcoming #HADADi to discuss art and technology in a friendly setting.
