The second MILL-WORKERS exhibition, Will Have Done, presents works across the idea of the organo-technological aesthetic by Manchester based Simon Blackmore, the London partnership Pil and Galia Kollectiv and the musician Four Tet. The works presented examine an environment where post-mechanisation is used to mimic natural forms and the interaction between the human and non-human world.

These works present a critique of, and alternative to, the retreat into ersatz nature/cultural heritage as a way of compensating for the disenchantment brought about by advanced technology. This is driven by a combination of futurology and nostalgia as seemingly defunct social forms and methodologies are presented using hi-tech and experimental techniques. Aspects of artificial intelligence and the ambiguous relationship between the human and both the alienation fostered by both technology and the increasing disengagement from the natural world in Western civilisation are examined. The view of the humanity presented here is uncertain in its relation to both our creations and our environment but it certainly suggests that any hope for our future lies in the more playful aspects of human nature.

Video art is having a moment. It's the portable eye, the audience in a box, the battery-powered theatre.

POST: is a season of screenings of artists‚ video that will seek to address and challenge this most prolific form of art. The camera, and the video itself, is among the most portable means of making and showing artworks, and the video artist has a peculiar ability to make conversation with the world while mobile within it...How far and how quickly can a camera run?

POST: will endeavour to break the back of video art, by screening challenging work from a variety of viewpoints, promoting the sky and the drain cover, feeding from contrast and the commonality of difference. It will explore the room to move, the chattiness, noise and the silence of the video art medium today.

Presenting work by: Michael Coombs, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Lee Cavaliere, Niki Sehmi, Daniel Bevan, Kate Kingston, Eleanor Lawler, Dani Marti, Biljana Jankovic, Nenad Kostic, Christopher JD, Carla Simoriah Scott, Edgar Oliveira

The Residence, 168A Victoria Park Road, London, E9 7HD

The Residence is pleased to import two evenings of Castlefield Gallery's regular screening event for artist's film and video: Purescreen. The programme provides a platform for outstanding recent work and aims to support new and emerging practitioners and curators. Following a recent ACE award, Purescreen presents these concise listings of information to help create, promote and develop artist's film and video. With special thanks to artist Dave Griffiths.

Following its success in 2003, PureScreen's heady mix of visual styles, challenging content and eclectic influences has gone from strength to strength. Work is presented single-screen, in a gallery context, to a dedicated audience of enthusiasts and practitioners. The early-evening events are an ideal networking forum. In addition, Purescreen distributes touring programmes to partner venues, and will provide a resource for other organisations involved in contemporary moving-image practice.

Amy Prior is a London-based writer. Her critically-acclaimed anthologies are published in the U.K. and U.S. and her stories are published in British and American anthologies and journals.
