On Friday we hosted Amsterdam company PIPS:lab as part of our ‘Random String’ programme at Warwick Arts Centre. In this guest post, Mark Hancock offers his reflections…
“Shadows in the Clouds, the show PIPS:lab performed on the night, looks at how willing we are to surrender our data. In this case, our visual data.

These were then used to fashion a short sci-fi film as the final performance of the evening…We aren’t here for the latest Marvel blockbuster. It’s the interaction and the humour of working live that engages the audience, not the awe and shock of CGI.”
