Sheffield and District African Caribbean Community Association hosted God’s Eye View IV (Conflict) by Prof. David Cotterrell exploring data visualisation projections based on an old army manual onto an impressive 5x5M dome with sound installation by collaborator Shelly Knotts. Prof. Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway filled the space with oil dripping at precisely the rate that the oceans are rising with their installation 196.85 ml/h. The festival received a 4-star Guardian review highlighting the role that art can play in place-making, with the choice of venues speaking to the history and culture of the city.
