“We are the body. We are under attack.”

A raging battle has begun between pro and anti-inflammatory forces in the swirling interior of a blister. Each sequence in Battle of Blister has been generated by human performers in an interactive film set. These animations chart the escalation from fly bite to full scale engagement; the never-ending battle between bacteria and the body.

Join the artists, Genetic Moo, in a drop-in workshop for you to generate your own multi-coloured animations. They’ll explain the science behind the project and give you a glimpse of the coding techniques they used to talk to the Kinect sensor. So grab a prop and be prepared to dance yourself into a bacterial frenzy!

You will also be able to explore the Silent Signal exhibition and relax with a drink in our bar. This is the final First Thursday for Silent Signal so don't miss out!
