Field Of Light

From 23 to 26 October the atrium at Millennium Point, Birmingham, will be covered in a Field of Light – with 120 fabulously coloured, energy-efficient glow lights. However, UKType have made it worldwide so you don’t have to be in Birmingham to experience the Field as there will be a web-cam so you’ll be able to watch it anytime a day through via the internet. The Field is also fully interactive so you can control what the Field does. There is a website with a really simple sequencer that will allow you to programme how the lights react. Before the website goes public UKType are looking for a few people to test it out and to see what they think.
If this sounds interesting, simply go to http://www.fieldoflight.net/home.aspx and register yourself with the site. Then if you fancy it go to the sequencer page where you can create your own light sequence.

Want your ArtWork on the Silver Screen???

UKType is collaborating with the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design (part of Birmingham City University) on the production of ‘Baskerville’ – a short animation celebrating the life, work and
influence of the city’s typographic genius (http://www.baskervilleproject.com).
The film will be premiered this autumn at the Hello Digital Festival, 23-26 October 2008. (http://www.hellodigital.net)

Production on the animation has already started and they are now looking for typographers, lettering artists, calligraphers and other creatives who would like to take part in a day of filming. Artists will be recorded while creating individual letters through drawing, carving, printing, incising etc. The letters will be used in a multi-screen installation spelling out the name Baskerville.

Filming will take place on Monday 22 September 2008 in the Milo Studio, Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, Gosta Green, Corporation Street, Birmingham, B4 7DX.

If you would like to get involved and see your work on the silver screen don’t hesitate to contact:
