Alan Warburton’s "Primitives" installation will be on display during the festival week, free of charge, exploring the intersection of entertainment and science using cutting-edge CGI "crowd simulation" software.
This technology is normally used in Hollywood blockbuster films to fill out cities, stadiums and battlefields and also by researchers and engineers working in crisis mapping, city planning and events management. Warburton's AV project explores this simulation software to “liberate the digital crowd” and allow it to live and explore more experimental parameters.
Presented with the ENCAC network, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
Alan Warburton is an award-winning, BFI-archived, queer British artist working with software, hardware and computer-generated images. He was born in Scotland and now lives in London.
