ManMade: In the Land of the Living is the final event of the art research project ManMade taking place as part of the Brighton Digital Festival 2017. This immersive performance explores themes of mankind, and approaches with curiosity and playfulness the question – What makes us human?
ManMade: In the Land of the Living
You are invited to immerse in a journey in which you will encounter the art works created by 6 commissioned artists: visual works, installations, projections and performances; a bespoke software system created by the digital artist Ben Sheehan will track the body movements of the performer, triggering projections on screens illustrating this journey of self-doubt and discovery.
ManMade is a 6 month-long project comprising several stages: workshops, performances, discussions, residencies and exhibitions. This final performance at BDF 2017 is the culmination of this process and will also include work from members of the public who participated.
Poster Book by project artists available at reduced price if purchasing special ticket with performance.
After the performance, there will a post show discussion.
