Alex Russell is an artist and creative coder. He works with code and digital/analogue media, using generative systems that assemble libraries of his images into one-off artworks. His code combines algorithms that model compositional methods from art and design with complex systems theory, creating unique outputs each time they run.
Babs Smith is a multidisciplinary artist based in Manchester. Her practice explores our visceral relationship with climate change using traditional mediums and new technologies.
John-Robin Bold is an immaterial artist working with electronic music, internet and installation art. His practice explores the aesthetic mutations of digital media and their unforeseeable impact on music, art, subjectivity and society at large.
Andee Collard is a Bolton-based artist who integrates machine-assisted techniques into his painting and drawing practice with a portable custom French box easel plein art machine. Andee fosters a symbiotic relationship with his machines, influencing and enhancing his artistic process.
