London Tigers, MediaShed, Furtherfield, Graham Peet, Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki - Being Connected

  • October - November 2008
  • Participatory project
  • Location: Science Museum Arts Projects gallery, first floor, and around South Kensington (no longer on display)

Ten young adults, the London Tigers, worked alongside eight professional artists in a festival series of workshops held at the Science Museum. During the festival the group creatively explored how today's digital technologies transform the ways in which we build and maintain relationships.

Drawing inspiration from the themes in Listening Post, an acclaimed artwork in the Science Museum's collection by Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin, the group 'sniffed out' CCTV cameras in South Kensington with MediaShed, produced short films of remixed audiovisual media created by people around the world with Furtherfield, mapped their community with Graham Peet, and built electronic musical sculptures out of discarded 'junk' with Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki.

The London Tigers presented an exhibition of their artworks in a gallery adjacent to Listening Post on the first floor of the Science Museum.
