Digital Film BYOB at Platform Southwark for one night only.

Bring Your Own Beamer – a series of one-night exhibitions, hosting artists and their projectors, was set up by Berlin-based artist Rafaël Rozendaal, in 2010.
It comes to Platform Southwark tomorrow Saturday 19th March .

Platform Southeark is a new three-story, multi-disciplinary, project space, which provides a new platform for artistic expression and engagement with the local community – and beyond.

The new cultural hub is the first activity of a proposed mixed-use development by U+I and Transport for London (TfL), who have invited a number of organisations to temporarily occupy the building, whilst curating a series of performances, exhibitions, workshops and events.
These organisations include collective collaboration Brainchild x Vermilion Hook, who will host BYOB – a project that reflects their own open source and inclusive philosophies.

Artists participating in this energetic exhibition event include:

Dan Adeyemi – who’s piece for BYOB is a living website. The webpage displays a document containing a constant flow of sentences, exposing the internal monologue of someone thinking about their lover.

Georgie Brinkman, – will be screening her new video Ant_Colony_Optimisation, inspired by an algorithm which simulates the behavioural patterns of ants in order to find the optimal path in a graph.

Alice Dunseath
Alice Dunseath – will exhibit her work, which brings together chemicals, crystals, along with other elements that have a life on their own.

Hannah Gill
Hannah Gill – Co-curator, Hannah will also be exhibiting at BYOB, with work that is unusually hands on and physical for digital filmmaking. Using a live feed connection between a camera and screen she creates a digital loop, which continues into infinity and inserts physical objects such as paper cut-outs and laser lights into these scenarios.

Vasilisa Forbes
Vasilisa Forbes – A fashion photographer and film-maker/video-director who has contributed to magazines such as Dazed & Confused and i-D, Forbes is also the brains behind the #WaxChick project – the series from which she will be showing work at BYOB.

Platform Southwark, 1 Joan Street, London SE1 – Ticketing: Free Entry – first come, first served.
