Glitch Instruments Workshop
Artist Charles Gershom will be at MOSTYN for a day long 'Glitch Instrument' workshop, where we'll be breaking apart old electronic toys and reforming them into experimental instruments.
No technological knowledge or ability is necessary before the workshop - it follows a philosophy of learning through breaking and rebuilding. Please bring along old electronic toys you wont mind smashing in the name of art.
About Charles Gershom;
Charles is a Welsh artist whose practice is built around a symbiotic relationship with technology. Much of his work uses custom built electronic and software devices to create electronic installations, audio performances and computer generated video with a very bare machinic aesthetic. The common subject matter of Charles’ work is the exploration of the interface between man and reality, and how we are augmented and changed as a species through the technology we create.
Charles has had work commissioned for the BBC and his work in support of other artists was recognised in 2013 with the Emma Sullivan Award for individual who has best combined aesthetic skill with social purpose and an awareness of the community.
