London based improvisers of industrial ambient noise, Ampersand are an improvisational sound ensemble who have performed across Europe over the last nine years. They produce an experience of sound to envelop the audience in the act of the moment and the art of the moment. This uniquely pan-generational group utilises found objects, engineered metal, deconstructed traditional instruments and audio toys. Ampersand performances are always improvised, they arise thus from the moment, the place, the atmosphere, the occurrences of that day. The sound, and the experience of that sound are imposed on all the senses, to share with the audience a charged and superlayered emotional state.

Ampersand are Brian Bushell, Joseph Oldfield, Stephen Oldfield and Paul Wells.

Hackney Wick based improvisers of psychadelic experimental music. The band is famously known for their impromtu and thrilling performances in the streets of Hackney and have now become the Cult band of Hackney Wick and the East Of London. their performance are visually stunning and complimented by out of this world extra-ordinary costumes which equally match their music.

Fear Of Fluffing are David Le Fleming, James Manning, Arran Bolders, and Reuben Sutherland.

Geodesic structures are fundamental to nature. They represent a design strategy utilised by many natural forms, including capsid viruses, planktonic micro-organisms and the seeds and spores of plant life. Drawing on his experience of the world as a Geoscientist, Stuart Glenday explores the aesthetics and symmetry of these fundamental forms through an exploration of pattern, colour and design tessellation. Geodesic structures are a clue for us. They hint towards a flaw in our perception of an apparently Cartesian universe. They are a signpost to a reality where the values of Pi and the Golden Ratio do not extend to infinity, where circles can be defined perfectly, and where the multi-dimensional nature of the real universe is not confined to the periphery of our imagination
