Radar is Loughborough University's contemporary arts programme that develops new work inspired by academic research. Radar aims to stimulate participation and debate through its cross disciplinary working with artists and academics identifying research and using it as a stimulus for producing new artistic outputs that are presented across the campus and the town. Radar offers audiences the opportunity to engage with ideas being explored within each programme through commissions, films and critical debate.
The Prediction Machine by Rachel Jacobs is almost complete and will be presented at Pilkington Library from 1-15 October. The machine marks ‘moments of climate change’ in our everyday lives and uses meteorological data to print out climate fortunes based on the weather now and predictions for the future.
Inspired by Loughborough University’s rich history of involving students in the physical development of the campus, artist Maria Pask will revisit this tradition in a new project. Maria Pask is an Amsterdam-based artist whose performance and installation works interpret the nature of collective creativity, empowerment and the live moment. Through a series of practical workshops with fine art students she will investigate the place of craft and revisit the romance of self-sufficiency both within the context of labour, but also within a fine art practice.
