The f.city exhibition presented by Fast-uk and folly, Perimeters, Boundaries and Borders presents practitioners that blur the conventional boundaries of sculpture, industrial design and architecture through the use of digital technology. The exhibition asks the question “What new types of objects and environments are being created by art and design professionals through the use of computer-aided design, data processing and manufacturing technologies?”

The Symposium, the afternoon of the private view, is an opportunity to hear those practitioners talk about their work and discuss how digital technologies have enabled a convergence of disciplines, creative practice and production techniques.

The symposium is free, but booking is essential.
To book, telephone 01524 388550 or email enquiries[at]folly.co.uk.
Venue: St. Martin's College, Lancaster Campus, Bowerham Road, Lancaster LA1 3JD, 01524 384384
Date: Thursday 28 September, 1 – 5pm


Supported by Fast-uk, MIRIAD and Arts Council England
