“We Have A Situation! Electronic waste is getting out of hand! We need your imagination and skills to... COMPLETELY CHANGE THE WAY WE ALL THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY!! We have a situation!, is a series of live, trans-border, online-offline participatory performances addressing current cross-cultural European issues. Four "situations" will be created in four countries - France, Netherlands, UK and Austria - with the final public performance addressing a particular matter of concern. For the London Situation the focus will be on electronic waste. Please join us for the Final Networked Performance - Sat 23 March 2013, 2PM The final networked performative event will take place at Furtherfield Gallery. The event will be streamed live through the UpStage platform with an online discussion between Furtherfield Gallery and kunstGarten Graz (AT) at the end of the event. ABOUT THE LONDON SITUATION: Working with Electronic Waste Media artist Tom Keene (Furtherfield) has been setting up the "situation" for the arrival of Helen Varley Jamieson (We Have a Situation! lead artist) and the other partners. Tom will work with Bright Sparks, a local recycling/fixing/making project, situated in the middle of a housing estate in Islington, not far from where Furtherfield Gallery is located, on researching the topic. Bright Sparks has been working with local people to re-use, repair and recycle electronics & furniture. The underlying theme that we are planning to explore through the London Situation and that has certainly strong resonance everywhere in Europe as well as worldwide, tackles current issues around the social & economic relationships with material things, and how these alternative counter-economies are evolving alongside the materialistic obsolescence of capitalist consumption. New EU regulations will soon require member states to collect 45 tonnes of e-waste for every 100 tonnes of electronic goods put on sale during the previous three years, with a target of 4kg of e-waste per person. That's about 2 million tonnes of e-waste to be collected every year - out of a total of 8 million tonnes generated annually in the EU. Who will be doing this collecting? Who will pay for it? Where and how will the e-waste be recycled? And what happens to the 8 million tonnes not collected for recycling? ABOUT THE PROJECT We have a situation! is a collaboration between four European arts organisations - APO33 (FR), Furtherfield (UK), MAD emergent art centre (NL), and Schaumbad Freies Atelierhaus Graz (AT) - and two individuals, Helen Varley Jamieson and Martin Eisenbarth. It is funded by the European Cultural Foundation.

“{crowdsourced} Noir / Love Beyond Recognition Josefina Posch in collaboration with Mike Blackman Saturday 08 September 2012, 12-6pm Please join us for a drop-in ‘clipsourcing’ workshop led by Swedish artist Josefina Posch in collaboration with artist and new media developer Mike Blackman (UK). Using online tools specifically created for the project, participants will identify who the speakers are, contribute keywords, and rate short Film Noir movie clips. The contribution will help shape the final interactive piece that will be streamed live at Futherfield Gallery in December 2012. About the Project {crowdsourced} Noir / Love Beyond Recognition is a process-based artwork encompassing a sculptural installation and an interactive stream across the World Wide Web. The origin of both parts of the project is based upon the notion of ‘crowdsourcing’. The principle being that more heads are better than one. By canvassing a large crowd of people for ideas, skills, or participation, the quality of content and idea generation will be superior. In this instance, crowdsourcing will be applied through the use of clipsourcing tools which have been developed to aid in project-related tasks that can only be achieved through human interaction/intervention. This way, the crowd will help the artist achieve these tasks whilst adding a democratic element to the final outcome of the project.

During Spring and Summer 2012, an interested public will be able to both participate and contribute to the project's creative process in two distinct ways: in Sweden as models, whereby a cast will be taken of a chosen body part (the body parts will later be assembled to full figure sculptures) and in the UK by taking part in a workshop at Furtherfield Gallery to help source short clips from Film Noir movies through our online tool. The final iteration of the project will be exhibited in Gothenburg, Sweden in December 2012 with live interactive streams at Furtherfield Gallery, London. About the Artist Josefina Posch
Josefina Posch is a Swedish artist that has worked and exhibited extensively abroad, including at the 52nd Venice Biennale, Fondazione Pistoletto's Cittadellarte, Sculpturespace NY and a residency at Duolun Museum of Modern Art Shanghai. During her 3 month residency at Art Space, Portsmouth, in Autumn 2010, she began her collaboration with artist and new media developer Mike Blackman in the development of her digital concepts. The project is supported by Arts Council England/British Council and the Gothenburg City Arts Council.

Join Codasign in this family workshop aimed at 7-12 year olds in which we will be making railway exploration vehicles inspired by SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe – Modern Ruins 1:220 commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and presented in partnership with Furtherfield.


We will be working with basic electronics, using 3v motors and gears to create a simple vehicle which runs on a copper tape circuit track. During the second part of the workshop we will create the shell of our vehicle out of cardboard and paint which the electronics will fit inside.

12 July - 2-4pm (meeting point: Furtherfield Gallery - McKenzie Pavilion Finsbury Park, London, N4 2NQ)


“Death needs time for what it kills to grow in,” wrote William S. Burroughs. True, but so is its opposite. Life needs what death kills to grow in. Hope has its roots in ruin. This walk with landscape architect, urbanist and writer Tim Waterman, along a disused railway line between Finsbury Park and Highgate will explore how vicious nature and the ruthless engines of urban decay can show us a new way of imagining utopia.


(Limited capacity £5 and up to two children under 15 free, details and online booking here)



The walk is part of a series of events in conjunction with the exhibition SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe: Modern Ruins 1:220 running from 20 June - 27 July (open Fri-Sun 11 to 6 pm) at Furtherfield Gallery.
