Sheffield is a city as famous for industry as it is for its contribution to culture, making it the perfect place to host AlgoMech – a festival of algorithmic and mechanical arts. Taking place over one weekend in May, the packed programme encapsulates the creative potential of code, and has a lot of fun with machines.
The theme for the festival's third edition is interlace – taking a look at unlikely and unusual inter-weavings of different art practices. There'll be handmade dancing robots making braids on a maypole, make-your-own-mechanical-techno, algorithmic Siberian trance, interactive textiles, invented mystical instruments, live pop music made from code, and much more.
