Type Motion Launch
No scheduled times
13 November / 6 - 8pm at FACT / 8pm till Late at Haus at Camp & Furnace
Be among the first to see over 240 outstanding examples of writing combined with moving image in our new exhibition, Type Motion.
The exhibition celebrates the creative possibilities of opening up uses of text far beyond print, and seeks to showcase not only the importance of writing, but how bringing it to life with movement is an artform in itself.
Charting the history of the moving image through the birth of cinema to television advertising and the creation of the music video through to the digital age, Type Motion is an exploration through our relationship with writing and moving images, alongside major cultural shifts.
Following the launch, we head to Haus at Camp and Furnace for an Algorave presented by Waxxx and FACT! Creating music from nothing more than a few lines of computer code, we are incredibly excited to be welcoming two of the country's best Algorave practitioners for our Type Motion after party. McLean and Yee-King are infamous on the club, coding, and art party circuit. So, who better to usher in the start of our new exhibition! This algorithmic, electronic performance will be followed by the ultimate type in motion performance: karaoke! Curated by Weave, a up and coming Liverpool-based design agency, expect 90's hits, karaoke classics, and a lot of moving typography!
Both events are completely free and unticketed.
