Ada, formerly Group 41, are running a series of two week schools in London, Warsaw & Poncé-sur-le-Loir this summer.
CAN will be tutoring at London II and are in the process of recruiting enthusiastic and exciting students for:
This two week course, based in central London, will combine the fields of performance art and architecture, using techniques from both to guide participants in how the internet can be used as a tool to generate anything from a 2d image to a full performance piece.
During the first week students will be taught how to take a 2-dimensional image and distort/glitch and extrapolate it in such a way as to generate the unexpected. Various form generating techniques will be used to guide the students, teaching them how to explore ideas quickly. Each day a new performance piece will be produced from an idea with everyone working together to document, present and discuss their unique piece. Students will be introduced to the work of various performance artists alongside the piece generation techniques.
The internet will be used as the departure point for this exploration and we will encourage students to see this vast resource not just as a research tool but as a starting point for creativity.
During the second week, the pieces produced in the first week will be brought together, and as a group, the students will develop, design and build a larger piece which will be shown in a final performance on the last day of the school. The students will learn the tools of collaborative working, set design and building as well as developing their performance work from the previous week.
Throughout the course, everyone will act as artist and teacher, finding new ways to talk about the work and their contribution. This course will include visits to key venues such as ‘The Live Art Agency’ and other London exhibition venues.

‘How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me’ - Hoxton Square, London by CAN
The design imbeds itself in its context, reflecting the eclectic history of the square back on its self. It plays on the square’s ecclesiastical past by using the churches technique of celebrating people and events through the use of Stained Glass. Each of the three windows are dedicated to one of the square’s most influential people. In our opinion, these were John Newton, the clergyman who wrote ‘Amazing Grace’, Peter Durand, a merchant who invented the process of tinning and preserving food and lastly, Eddie Piller, the founder of the square’s first nightclub, The Blue Note, which signalled the tide of the creative industries to the area.
