Annika Eriksson’s Adventure Ahead


Gymnasium‘s Adventure Ahead is new project which is derived from footage from the Media Archive of Central England in Lincoln, which holds a huge array of films from amateur and broadcast sources. The work takes footage from a number of sources, including Children Rule 2080 – a science-fiction film, made in 1980, featuring children in a future world. Creating a time-warp of propositional projection from and reflection on this key era in social history, the project takes the form of a film installation in a temporary venue in Lincoln city centre. Selected previous works by Annika Eriksson can be seen at Project Space Plus, the University of Lincoln gallery.

Annika Eriksson is a Swedish artist living in Berlin. Her work is often concerned with loops of time and hallucinations of unrealised futures, considering the future from the present, in relation to the past or vice versa, and interweaving different time zones. Over the years, Eriksson has produced a large number of works in which the perception of time, structures of power, and social visions are called into question.

TOOL – Maker Lab Collective

The Maker Lab Collective would like to invite you to join them in “making”:


Something regarded as necessary to the carrying out of one’s occupation or profession. Something used in the performance of an operation; an instrument.

A device for performing work, tool suggests an implement adapted to facilitate a definite kind or stage of work and suggests the need of skill more strongly than implement.

A tool can be a physical object such as mechanical tools including saws and hammers or a technical object such as web authoring tool or a software program.

Furthermore; a concept can be a tool.

Creating is the tool, which allows the child’s mind to grow.

Words are a tool.



Make a tool; use the tool to show what the tool can do.

This project is aimed at anyone who is interested in MAKING of any kind.

The deadline for this project is Monday 11th January 2016, resulting in an exhibition of work.
