Contemporary artists display how meteorology has impacted on their work.Matt Wright
Matt Wright is joined by some of the UKs most innovative classical, jazz and improvising musicians, including saxophone legend Evan Parker, Splinter Cell, SPOCK, and Roger Redgate for the world-premiere of Wavetable
interactive installation. Together they will immerse you in an enthralling interactive installation, where the sound of the sea will flood into the gallery.
"Evan Parker and Matthew Wright’s intriguing collaboration edits layers of live performance into a shimmering mist of undulating and unbroken sonic textures [...] the result enthrals and soothes in equal measure."
Mike Hobart, Financial Times, on 'Trance Map', the new CD from Evan Parker and Matt Wright

Protei is proud to introduce its shape-shifting, Open Hardware Sailing Robot for Ocean Sensing and Cleaning.
Protei is a collaborative project born at the intersection of art, interaction design and science. It was primarily developed to intercept Oil Spill sheens drifting down-wind by using a long oil absorbent “tail” sailing up-wind. With its shape-shifting hull it appropriates existing technologies in an innovative low cost design that can be implemented in the short term to address a range of environmental crisis.
At Late Night Live: Elemental, Protei will explain how these design innovations came about; the differences compared with traditional boat building design and the benefits that can be gained globally through these innovations.
Visitors will be encouraged to think about and develop their own boat design in the aim of creating a boat that sails more efficiently.
