==== Sian Fan ====
"Seeping Out: Virtuality Beyond the Screen"
Sian Fan will be analysing and exploring how new technologies act as portals
into digital realms. She will explore how the screen sits as a barrier between
two worlds, mediating, interrupting, and ultimately dividing the physical world
from the digital dimension. She will discuss the commonalities between digital
spaces and dream spaces, analysing how both act as distortions of our waking
reality, enabling escapism and for the impossible to be realised, but not
Sian Fan is an emerging artist working in digital media, installation and
performance. She is currently studying a Fine Art Masters at Central Saint
Martins. Sian works with movement, the female body and technology to explore
and expose what it means to exist, both physically and spiritually. She
explores the relationship between the natural and the digital through 3D
scanning, animation and virtual reality.

==== Dr. Elif Ozden Yenigun ====
This project has emerged in the career of two researchers as a consequence of
over-priced printers, and high material specs in the aerospace industry
associated with expensive research costs, that lead to innovative artefacts and
affordable self-built 3D printers.
Dr. Elif Ozden Yenigun is a Senior Tutor in textiles at the Royal College of
Art. She is a material scientist interested in nanoengineered aerospace
composites, smart wearables, and 3D textile preforms. Her research focuses on
developing cutting-edge textile-based materials and manufacturing methods that
enable the design of more novel and optimized engineered systems and products.
==== Open dorks/demos: ====
You! Get in touch and let us know if you'd like to give a short five minute
talk on something.
==== How to get to Limehouse Town Hall: ====
NB: Unfortunately Limehouse Town Hall is not wheelchair accessible as
there are steps from the street and up to the main hall.
== By Tube: ==
Limehouse DLR from Bank or Tower Gateway
== By Bus: ==
15 from Trafalgar Sq / 115 from Aldgate /
D6 from Hackney / D3 from Bethnal Green
Beware! Google's location for E14 7HA is a bit off, it's actually
opposite where Salmon Lane joins Commercial Road, or in other words...
Get onto Commercial Road and travel East from Aldgate or Whitechapel.
Stay on Commercial Road, passing Limehouse DLR on your right (and going
under a railway bridge) and you'll see a modern red brick church also
on the right, then a boarded up library. Just over the canal you'll see
the Town Hall, with the Limehouse Hawksmoor church behind it, on the
opposite side of the road from the big metal anchor. At this point you
should get off the bus/bicycle and come ring on the "Boxing Club" bell
(The top of the 4 main buttons).
