Electronic Artist – Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Recorders – Manchester Art Gallery

Posted on: No Comments

Saturday 18th September 2010 – Sunday 30th January 2011

Recorders is a major new exhibition by Mexican-Canadian electronic artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. The artworks in Recorders see, hear and feel the actions of people around them, using technology to create a playful yet ominous experience. This solo exhibition features seven recent pieces by the artist, including the world premieres of two specially commissioned new installations.

Lozano-Hemmer’s artworks depend on the participation of visitors to exist and develop, as the artist describes:

“In Recorders, artworks hear, see and feel the public, they exhibit awareness and record and replay memories entirely obtained during the show. The pieces either depend on participation to exist or predatorily gather information on the public through surveillance and biometric technologies.”

Highlights of the exhibition include Pulse Room, on show in the UK for the very first time. Made up of 100 light bulbs activated by a sensor to flash at the exact rhythm of particpants’ heart rates. Also, the work People on People (a co-commission by Manchester Art Gallery and Abandon Normal Devices festival), a major new installation inspired by portraiture and shadowplays, which will turn the gallery’s temporary exhibition space into one of the world’s most advanced scanners.

Manchester Art Gallery is the only UK venue for this show, an interactive experience not to be missed! Plus free of charge!!!

Visit Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s website to find out more about his work.

Top tech specs for the final frontier of hotels

Posted on: No Comments


From serviced apartments to luxury hotels, boutique B&B’s and spa retreats, technology has revolutionised the way we stay. And it goes well beyond iPod docking stations.

We pride ourselves on providing quality in-Roomzzz facilities, and obsessively stay up to date with developments across the world. So we thought it would be interesting to put together some of the most useful, cutting edge and bizarre technology you could come into contact with on your next city break, business trip or holiday.

As the UK’s leading aparthotel brand, when checking into our hotels in Leeds/Manchester you’ll naturally find a good number of these gizmos and gadgets waiting for you. As for the rest, we’d love to be blasting off to space from the north of England, though that will most probably be a few years away yet…

HD Screens- It might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many hotels haven’t invested in the future of TV yet. Widely regarded as the must have device in any address, thankfully many of our Roomzzz offer the chance to cosy up in front of these.

Radiofrequency ID- It may take some time for this to become the standard, but still, we’re impressed by the potential. Guests can forget keys and cards, and gain access to rooms via their mobile phone.

Internet & WiFi- An absolute essential. We’d be nowhere without the internet, and tied to a desktop if it weren’t for wireless. Luckily enough, you’ll find a WiFi connection and gleaming Apple Macintosh in every Roomzzz.

Rotating rooms- OK, so there’s only one place in the world planning this. Nevertheless, we thought the resort on Croatia’s Solta Island that has been toying with revolving technology to give every guest a sea view, worth a mention.

Watching soap(suds)- There’s no better way to unwind than in the bath. With wall-mounted screens, as many Roomzzz have, you can also watch TV, and not worry about dropping the remote in the water.

Lunar lodgings- Sci fi has become reality… well, almost anyway. Orbital Technologies plans to open a four-room hotel, in space. The Russian company hopes guests will be shooting off to the stars on Soyuz shuttles from 2016.

Red carpets & champagne

The coast near Cannes is far removed from the canals and Corn Exchange of Leeds. But at this time of year they feel a little closer, what with Yorkshire’s biggest city hosting the UK’s third largest International Film Festival at the moment.

We already pointed you to Leeds’ 24th cinematic celebration on this blog, but now the time has finally arrived we couldn’t help but give another heads up. After all, it’s not just the final major European movie event of the year, it’s also widely regarded as the best audience focused event in the country. So there’s no better time to book a short break in this fine city.

Events began last week, with Tom Hooper’s acclaimed George IV biopic, The King’s Speech. A sell out well before the screening, if you missed the chance to get tickets, then perhaps booking accomodation in Leeds for the weekend of November 20th is a good idea. A second showing will take place at Hyde Park Picture House, conveniently located close to Roomzzz City West.

Away from historic dramas, and onto more oddball antics, the critically lauded Cravendale-style animation, A Town Called Panic, has its final moment of glory on Tuesday November 9th, at Leeds Town Hall. We highly recommend this film, after all, the story- which follows madcap characters on the hunt for the perfect home- is close to our hearts.

Other highlights over the next seven days include Stanley Kubrick’s 50-years-on-and-still-hilarious Dr Strangelove, or How I Learnt to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, which needs little introduction before it screens tonight and Wednesday. And further reasons to visit this week can be found in Anton ‘Control’ Corbijin’s eagerly anticipated George Clooney thriller, The American. You can catch that on Thursday 11th and Saturday 13th, again at Hyde Park Picture House.

Our serviced apartments offer the ideal accomodation to use as a base while taking in your selection from the hundreds of screenings taking place during this 18 day showcase. Both Roomzzz sites are close to all city centre and district venues, so simply download a festival programme, then contact Roomzzz Central Reservations and turn your cinematic stay into a luxury city break.
