Test Space Beamer (Bring Your Own Battery)

As part of Centre of Gravity’s takeover of the former Gardner Haskins building in Bristol, Test Space will be running a Bring Your Own Beamer type event.

This will be on Saturday 17 October from 6-9pm.

Bring Your Own Beamer’ (BYOB) is an idea by Rafaël Rozendaal where artists come together in a non hierarchical and organic way to stage showings of their projected imagery and films using their own equipment over the space of a few hours in a busy environment.

In normal times this is an anarchic event where would be projectionists jostle for space and project overlapping images in a vibrant mess where there is little or no distinction between artist and audience.

But these are not normal times….

So, we aim to adjust the BYOB format to enable as many people as possible to show and view work. What this means is that we need people to express an interest in advance of coming along to take part. We also need as many people as possible to bring equipment that is self powered – ideally by battery.

So, if you want to take part, please let us know by emailing us at adopting the following format:

Header: BYOB and name

Equipment: specify self powered or wattage if mains required

Many thanks

the Test Space Team
