Well it came and went, with some spectacular work from over 50 Artists. We had Live performance from Bedwyr Williams, Rhys Trimble and Alys Hughes. All braving the freezing conditions in Conwy. The whole town being used as a gallery space worked very well, attracting over 20,000 visitors over the weekend. The BBC broadcast on national television which was a real boost for Alan Turing’s Centenary. Over all considering the scale and the sheer volume of people and content, we all think it went pretty well..

The Artist/ Curators of the Day today are Craig Morrison and Joel Cockrill.
blinc was started by Craig and Joel. as curators in 2011, this year, its twice the size, with more venues and over 30 artists. They have curated a variety of art forms including projections, performance, dance, poetry and installation as well as exhibiting their own work at the festival.
Craig Morrison’s initial work with Meat Beat Manifesto and his Cyber Punk designs led to his work being on permanent display at both the Science Museum in London and the V&A. He has always been passionate about Art and Film. The Alan Turing Centenary has inspired him to collaborate on two large works this year: Intense Colour Movement , a large projection piece on Plas Mawr and Thank You, an emotional response to Alan Turing’s Epitaph re-created in neon. Both are being streamed on The BBC Space.
A sense of place, and the interplay of sound and light within a space have been a repeated reference in Joel Cockrill’s work across a wide variety of media and creative explorations. These core interests have been the elemental influences for film, performance, audio work and collaboration for the last 25 years.
The BBC arts site The Space will feature several of Joel’s short documentary films based on the work of other blinc artists, exploring their motivation, inspiration and relevance to the centenary of the 2012 centenary of Alan Turing’s birth.
Please visit the Call For Submission pages and follow the procedure.
We hope to encourage lost of different artists from all over the world from all manner of disciplines..

Conwy Council, Cadw and The Arts Council for Wales recently funded the Blinc Digital Arts Festival, a two-day, site-specific festival of light and sound based artworks, exploring the role that history plays in today’s modern environment. Performance Artists, Film Makers, Photographers, Digital Artists and Animators exhibited, projecting imagery and illustrations onto Conwy’s 13th century Castle. Huge crowds watched as images addressing myth, personal and chronological history, and humour engulfed the castle walls.Blink Digital: http://blincdigital.com/
