“b.TWEEN” event @ Museum of Science & Industry, Manchester. 19th/20th June 2008.

Things are getting a little frenzied as I prepare for the Opening Night of “The Chorlton Bench Project” this coming Friday, but I wanted to give some air to something called ‘b.TWEEN 08‘ a 2-day event which sounds like an interesting gathering of the great and the good @ MOSI, Manchester. With a leaning towards New Media, Advertising and Creative Technology, the sponsor’s are pretty high profile including Channel 4 and the BBC.

The website is worth a visit, the Interactive Gallery page gives the opportunity to view and vote on interactive new visual work, the winner will be shown @ MOSI during the event. You can also book onto a personal One-2-One Session with some of the speakers. Featuring representatives from amongst others; TwentyTwenty TV, Bebo and Fluorescent Media lots of talented specialists in areas such as branding, audience engagement, trends and digital strategy.

Despite all those sponsers, I am sad to say it ain’t free, it is quite expensive from £60 for a one-day student pass and £95 freelancers/micro company rate but could be worth it for the quality of speakers and networking/advice on offer. The website is free to browse though and many of the presentations will be available on YouTube after the event. Click here for some of the talks from “b.TWEEN 2007.”

UPDATE This event has now been and gone. If you wish to read a little about what went on then click over to “The Mancunian Way” were they blogged each day on the event. Also try the “Real Fresh TV” site for some really in-depth analysis by someone who was actually there AND took part in one of the sessions.

Last week I was privileged to get to see some amazing work at a slideshow showcase organised by Redeye (the photography network for the North-West of England). It was truly a worldwide feast of chosen winners with images from photographers in China, Poland, Spain, Bangladesh to name but a few.

Landscape with Apparent Horizon

I really liked “Landscape with Apparent Horizon” by Darren Harvey-Regan, UK. Check out the full set of images at www.harveyregan.com/3%20frameset%20landacape.html. There were 20 slideshows in total, to be considered for inclusion the running time needed to be between 1 and 5 minutes and then get through a rigorous selection panel.

“Maternal Mortality” by © Jean Chung

One set of images really stood out. Have a look for yourself, but be prepared for some powerful and distressing photographs:- “Maternal Mortality” Jean Chung (South Korea) – www.jeanchung.net/maternalmortality.My third choice from the evening would have to be “Old Dhaka-Belonging” by Munem Wasif (Bangladesh) click on this link to see what I mean www.munemwasif.com ( then follow link to Gallery>Stories>Old Dhaka Belonging gallery).
