Calum Bowden designs interfaces to complex and entangled systems. Through design strategy and moving image, he examines frameworks, protocols, and infrastructures. His research focuses on the implications of emerging technologies, to imagine alternative social and economic realities, exploring themes of violence, public policy, networking, simulation, and the public sphere. Calum graduated with an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art and a BSc in Anthropology from University College London. calsbo.com
Rosie Carr sees filmmaking as a way to plot and reveal idiosyncratic connections between herself, the artistic process, and the people and objects around her. Sometimes the most interesting germ of information is the thing in the background, or the one next-door, hovering on the periphery. She uses storytelling as a method of stimulating objects and their histories. She has just completed an MA in Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Fine Art, and previously studied Painting at Camberwell College of Arts, London. www.rosiecarr.co.uk
Callum Hill is a London based artist filmmaker. Her films are led by real characters, locations and experiences. From these factual starting points she constructs idiosyncratic, at times erratic, narratives that are driven by a psychoanalytical process. Her films have been screened and exhibited internationally. She was the winner of the Artist Film Award at Aesthetica Film Festival, 2016. Her most recent work CROWTRAP, 2018 was awarded funding by Arts Council England and The Elephant Trust. She studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College and Sculpture and Moving Image at the Royal Collage of Art, London. www.callumhill.co.uk
Onyeka Igwe is an artist filmmaker and programmer living and working in London. Her research based practice is dominated by a preoccupation with the physical body and geographical place as sites of cultural and political meaning. She uses dance, voice, archive and text in her non-fiction video work to create structural figure of eights, exposing a multiplicity of narratives both within and beyond these sites. Onyeka’s works have shown at the ICA; Nuit Blanche, Toronto; Guildhall Art Gallery; and London, Internationale Kurtzfilmtage Wintherthur, Edinburgh Artist Moving Image, and Hamburg film festivals. www.onyekaigwe.com
Kristina Pulejkova is a London-based multimedia artist who works at the intersection of art, science and technology. Working mainly with moving image and installation, she aims to build a subjective narrative based on data and principles from the scientific disciplines of astronomy, physics, biology and ecology. Her works have been shown at the V&A, The London Science Museum, SPACE gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art (solo show), Skopje amongst others. Selected screenings include MAK, Vienna, ArtCOP21 in Paris, Up and Coming Festival in Hannover, Het Glaspaviljoen in Eindhoven, Tricky Women in Vienna, Film:riss in Salzburg.
