the
National Film Theatre) next Friday and Saturday (27th-28th April 2007)

Through screenings and conversations between artists, filmmakers, and
writers, Now (and Again) will explore the variety of manifestations and
applications of re-enactment as a creative and critical strategy within
contemporary moving image culture.

For full details, visit: http://www.unreal.as/nowandagain/now.htm

   Jeremy Deller (whose re-enactment of the BATTLE OF ORGREAVE was  
filmed
by Mike Figgis in 2001)
   Rod Dickinson (creator of the MILGRAM RE-ENACTMENT, 2002, and the  
WACO
RE-ENACTMENT, 2004)

AFRAID OF THE FUTURE, 2005, and of the forthcoming LIVING WITH THE

   Penny Woolcock (director of THE DEATH OF KLINGHOFFER, 2003, THE
PRINCIPLES OF LUST, 2003, and MISCHIEF NIGHT, 2006)

The symposium will also include numerous screenings. Organised by the
Centre for Research in Film and Audiovisual Cultures at Roehampton
University and UnReal in collaboration with BFI Southbank, this  
symposium
forms part of the “After the Fact: Re-enactments” season of screenings,

b) FACT:
David Rokeby in Conversation
30 April 7.00pm
Location: The Box

Don't miss this opportunity to listen, first hand, to David Rokeby's  
ideas on how humans and computers work and influence each other. He  
will be joined by curator Sarah Cook, University of Sunderland; media  
artist Susan Collins, Slade School of Fine Art, and researcher on  
material culture and anthropology Victor Buchli, University College  
London.
The David Rokeby exhibition Silicon Remembers Carbon will be open in  
Galleries 1 and 2 and the Media Lounge from 3.00pm-7.00pm
Event organized in conjunction with the University of Westminster.

The exhibition:
Silicon Remembers Carbon
20 April - 10 June
Location: Gallery 1, Gallery 2, Media Lounge

David Rokeby has shaped the history of media arts for over 20 years.  
His artwork explores how humans see and hear the world, aiming to  
make computers more human and to make us more aware of how our own  
rational machinery works.
Born in Ontario, Canada, in 1960, David Rokeby has received acclaim  
in both arts and technical fields across the globe. His interactive  
sound environment Very Nervous System (1986-2004) premiered at the  
Venice Biennale in 1986 and received a BAFTA for interactive art in  
the UK in 2000 and three awards at the prestigious Arts Electronica  
Festival. This is the first major presentation of Rokeby's work in  
the UK.
For this first retrospective of the work of David Rokeby in the UK,  
FACT, in collaboration with DA2 (Digital Arts Development Agency) has  
re-staged the works that signify key moments in his career.  
Interactive installations of machines that see, hear, talk and make  
decisions invite us into the mysterious magical and lonely realm of  
the computer.

At the centre of Rokeby's work, as an inventor, is the interface: the  
communication channel between humans and computers. His critical  
approach to the design of interfaces is based on the premise that  
technology defines the way we see the world, hence we should make  
sure that tech vision is accurate (or at least pleasing).

This exhibition, curated by Peter Ride, is delivered in conjunction  
with DA2, and supported by Canada House Trust, The Canadian High  
Commision, London and the British Computer Society. The exhibition  
will tour to the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glagow.
