Tom Milnes

5 Aug - 8 Aug 2009

Tom Milnes was artist in residence at The Royal Standard for three weeks, developing a number of projects both inside and outside the studio complex. Working in a variety of media including sound, performance, installation and interactive web-based projects, Milnes probes the possibilities opened up by technology in sublime or humorous ways with works often stemming from initial scientific experiments behind modern technology; reworking, mapping, recreating or explaining what has been discovered.

For one week following the residency, Milnes opened up his studio to the public as he continued to work at The Royal Standard, experimenting with robotics and homemade sequential circuits to animate forms that he developed during the residency. This featured a liver performance of his work 21st Century One-Man Ban, in which the artist uses mobile audio gadgets to create music.
