Future Machine


How do we, as inhabitants of the 21st century, imagine the future?  How do we imagine the post-Starbucks High Street?  Or post high-street urban space?

We asked the members of the Brighton Animator’s Network Group to imagine the future – and animate it.  The result was Future Machine, a large-scale projection event in for the 2009 White Night Festival directed by Sarah Bird, Kate Genevieve and Abbie Stanton.

Crowds of thousands saw Brighton's Unitarian Church flicker with utopias and dystopias, whilst the public experimented with LEDs and slow shutter speeds at BANG’s light animation workshop in the Pavilion Gardens.
