Field Broadcast + The Bad Vibes Club
(Mostly) taking place July 11-15 2017
Interruptions is a Chrome extension artwork by The Bad Vibes Club that augments, modifies and interrupts your browsing experience. Performing mostly during the week of 11th-15th July, Interruptions will change the way you browse the web, providing you with unexpected moments of visual, aural and conceptual interruption dependent on the time of day, the websites you visit, and the content you see.
Interruptions is both a collection of individual artworks by Sam Mercer and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, and a collaborative work with Field Broadcast, who commissioned the Interruptions project. Interruptions has been developed through research conducted by The Bad Vibes Club into the history of interruptions as an artistic practice. This research period included events at Milton Keynes Gallery, Furtherfield, Lancaster Arts and Open School East. You can see full documentation of the research phase here and on the Interruptions blog.
Interruptions has been supported by the Arts Council England, with additional support from Lancaster Arts, Furtherfield, Milton Keynes Gallery and Open School East.
