Exponentialgrowth Rebecca Beinart

Exponential Growth is a commission for the Radar Arts Program at Loughborough Unversity. The project has created an exchange network to share locally found yeast cultures, in an experiment to see whether Loughborough’s ‘Culture’ can colonise the world, and what the limits are to growth.

Nightjar took place in Cambridge in October 2009, presenting a series of temporary artworks and encounters between the hours of dusk and dawn. As the evenings drew in, Nightjar celebrated the city’s long hours of darkness with performances, installations and artist led walks.

Nightjar looks beyond the conventional gallery or theatre space, inhabiting the more unexpected sites of the city. Forgotten and overlooked spaces come alive with after-dark activities and familiar venues open their doors out of hours. The 2009 programme included new commissions alongside existing works adapted specifically for their location.

Luke Jerram, Plant Orchestra
Urban (Col)laboratory, Choreographing Knowledge
Jonathan Watts, Reader in Residence
Chris Parsons, Dew Sweeping
Townley and Bradby, Conversations After Dark
Amy Sharrocks, drift

Nightjar was initiated by independent curator Jo Mardell and funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and supported by Cambridge Festival of Ideas, Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Cambridge County Council, Cambridge City Council and Hotel du Vin.
