Electric Futures: Vauxhall Ampera Technology Week

Electric Futures: Vauxhall Ampera Technology Week begins today at King’s Cross Filling Station in London, featuring talks, installations and performances that examine the future of creative technologies.

The King’s Cross area of London has, in recent months, become a new quarter for creatives and innovators, ready to move on from the overblown eastern edge of the city. KXFS, aka King’s Cross Filling Station, is playing host to some of the hippest hipsters around, and this week showcases Electric Futures: Vauxhall Ampera Technology Week. The event, curated by Beatrice Galilee, explores interactive design technologies and includes talks on the future of creative technology, along with the implications of open source architecture and gadget hacking.

The event kicks off tonight with with an installation by Nuit Blanche New York, using a selection of works by Melodie Mousset and Martynka Wawrzyniak.

Other highlights throughout the week include Tuur van Balen‘s introduction to the world of DNA hacking, Thomas Lommee’s take on the future of co-design using his OpenStructures project, and Choy Ka Fai‘s performance that combines art with technology. The program runs until Sunday 26th August and all events are free.
