The Open Cage on Tour

27 April 2021

An exciting collaboration of academics from the University of Sunderland were commissioned to present a piece of art during the #cyberfest event.

Working in partnership with CoLab, the event was hosted by Guerilla Working and Breeze Creatives. With the goal to envision aspects of cyber security and to find new ways to talk about it, James Hutchinson from Fine Art explored concepts and data with computer scientist Sardar Jaf developing The Open Cage. Working with fellow artist Nick Lewis the conceptual piece was digitised and animated with a sound track. The Open Cage has provided a discussion point at the Henry Moore Centre in Leeds and is soon to appear in Paris at featuring in an expose of James’ work.
