Blip is a forum for artists, scientists and members of the public interested in new forms of art that explore generative and procedural processes, interaction, emergence and artificial life. We are based in Brighton, UK, and in the last 4 years we have organized presentations, exhibitions, gigs and three Big Blip festivals. To facilitate access, we primarily organize events in bars, clubs and other public venues in the centre of the city.

a series of events, organised by Blip in association with Lighthouse, that explores how artists are reconfiguring technology.

Exhibition of Paul Granjon's Sexed Robots and films of Fluffy Tamagotchi, Furman and Chicken Feet.

After their successful showing at the Venice Biennale, the male and female robots will be roaming around an arena in the new Lighthouse building, just down from Wagamama (Argus Lofts, 26 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ). Most of the time they avoid each other (and the walls) but when they come into heat they seek each other out and try to mate.

Watch a movie of the Sexed Robots.

Open Monday - Saturday 12pm - 6pm, 23 October - 4 November. Lighthouse, Argus Lofts. Free admission. Children very welcome.

Pyrophonic! An evening of live performance by musicians and visual artists commissioned by Lighthouse and Blip: Icarus, Tom Arthurs, Maurizio Ravalico, Lothar Ohlmeier, Squint, Brittski and Paul Granjon.

This event fuses the surreal wit of artist Paul Granjon with a series of collaborative electronic, acoustic and visual improvisations from the newly formed 'Not Applicable Artists' and film artists Squint and Brittski.

The first spark is struck by Paul Granjon who will demonstrate primitive fire-making technology and sing a couple of songs with his home-made machines. The Not Applicable Artists will then get the fire roaring with a series of live electronic/acoustic and visual improvisations. This new collaboration sees Ollie Bown and Ismbard Khroustaliov (aka Icarus) join forces with F-IRE collective artists Tom Arthurs (trumpet), Maurizio Ravalico (percussion) and Lothar Ohlmeier (bass clarinet). Visual fuel is added to the final mix by film artists Squint and Brittski with their unique blend of 16mm footage, looped video and slides.

Friday 3 Novemember, The Old Market, Upper Market Street, Hove BN3 1AS.
Performance starts at 8pm (doors open one hour before).

Tickets are £7 and can be bought online from WeGotTickets or from Resident (01273 606 312), Rounder Records (01273 325 440) or direct from the Old Market (01273 736 222).
