Brighton digital festival has city buzzing
9:53am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
The Brighton Digital Festival, a month long festival of digital culture, has taken over the city with an amazing 169 events.
From 12 Tiny Games and the pop video event SoundScreen, to Swimming with Plankton in 3D at the Booth Museum, the festival celebrates the innovative and exciting world of new media and technology in Brighton.
As well as attending the many workshops, discussions and events, members of the public can get involved by trying out the digital artist’s Hide and Seek’s Tiny Games, which are in outdoor locations in central Brighton, close to some of the festival’s key venues.
Easy to play and understand the games are aimed at giving people a quick way to have some fun and take part in the event.
The festival runs throughout September and offers a series of events, many free, suitable for techy geeks to families and anyone who wants to know more about the new technology being inspired in Sussex.
The event is led by the community, produced by organisations from the arts and digital communities, including digital artists, makers and producers.
Digital business company Wired Sussex coordinates the festival, supported by the network of organisers such as the digital culture agency Lighthouse.
Lighthouse artistic director Honor Harger said: “The festival is going really well. We screened Dial M for Murder, the remastered 3D addition last night. It was followed by a discussion with special guests afterwards, who were making the case for and against 3D.
“The room was full, there was a fantastic turn out and the feedback was great. Everyone loved it”.
Honor added: “The 12 Tiny Games around the city are going really well. People love them.
“There is one right outside our office and we can see them having fun and enjoying themselves”.
The Argus went down to the Digital Festival today to try out the 12 Tiny Games dotted around the city.
One was a Spot the Seagull game in which three players would stare up into the sky and the first one to spot a seagull wins.
It’s as simple as that.
After enjoying the game we followed the map around to find the other 11 games and gave those a go.
The games are brilliant for families, friends, kids and adults to play. They are quick and simple and the rules can be gathered within seconds. Why not play them on the move whilst walking around Brighton or on your way to one of the other exciting Digital Festival events.
