You can find out more about AFTERGLOW and watch a preview of the artwork on the Silent Signal website. Their 2017 art work Robots in Distress is exhibited as part of the exhibition Future Emerging Art & Technology in LifeSpace.

boredomresearch is a collaboration between British artists Vicky Isley and Paul Smith. Fascinated by the mechanics of the natural world, they use computational technology to simulate natural patterns, behaviours and intricate forms that gradually change over time.

boredomresearch’s work opens channels for meaningful dialogue and engagement between public and scientific domains. Their artwork Real Snail Mail was the world’s first webmail service to use real snails, challenging our cultural obsession with speed and received worldwide attention. Based at the National Centre for Computer Animation, Bournemouth University, their work benefits from a fine blend of art and science – allowing them to achieve projects underpinned by a deep appreciation of the creative possibilities of technology.

boredomresearch’s artworks are in collections around the world including the British Council and Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul. Exhibitions include: Bio-Art 2015, Seoul; ISEA2015, Vancouver; and TRANSITIO MX_06 Electronic Arts & Video Festival, Mexico City.
