HASHFAIL event at Grand Union // 7pm til late / Friday 14 December

Event & publication launch at Grand Union
Friday 14 December, 7pm til late

An evening of film and performance at Grand Union, featuring work by Rhys Coren, Polly Fibre, Joey Holder, JK Keller, Yuri Pattison, Pil & Galia Kollectiv and Oliver Sutherland.

This coincides with WINTER FEST at Warwick Bar. We’ll be serving drinks and will round off the night with dancing.

The event, organised by Open File, is the first in a series of three, investigating distribution and production of art via virtual and digital platforms through sound, performance and digital media.

A Hashfail occurs when a ‘seeded’ torrent file becomes corrupt and ‘bits’ of data cannot be received. Numerous Hashfails lead to the loss of quality and gradual decomposition of a file, shifting it ever-further from its origin, subjecting it to a new type of physicality and texturing.

They have created a torrent including artworks by the artists performing on the night, plus an essay by Gil Leung. Open File Torrent is available NOW!
