A Confused Mass, Sophie Rogers

Inspired by the way sci-fi creates fictional universes, artist Sophie Rogers uses digital software to create navigable simulations of imagined places and scenes.

In August 2019 Sophie undertook a residency with Mansions of the Future, resulting in a digital commission to coincide with Frequency Festival.

This new online commission combines simulations of alternate realities with research into Donna Harraway’s writing on how the human and non-human are inextricably interlinked.

Industrial Quarry 001, Victoria Roberts

Industrial Quarry, Victoria Roberts

Large scale black and white images show the magnitude of an industrial quarry and how it disrupts the surrounding landscape. A quarry can have multiple impacts on the environment; visual intrusion, dust, damaged landscape, loss of land and a deterioration in water quality.
Created in response to the Frequency Festival 2019 theme, ‘Disruption=Cultural Reinvention’, Robert’s photographs put the often-unearthly quarry landscapes front and centre, while her captions explore the work the industry is doing to restore this land to agriculture or woodland.

TTFN: Ta Ta For Now

We have now brought Frequency Festival 2015 to a close.

This year we’ve ventured deep into the heart of the internet, taken a journey under the sea and fought for our right to dream. We found out if we were pretty or ugly and whether that even matters, we saw just how much the internet knows about us and heard the noise our digital communications create. We took a road trip through the US, got buried alive, flew into space from our apartments and even found enlightenment in a shopping centre. All in just ten days.
