Gossamer Fog's new virtual production studio 𝘼𝙡𝙩_𝙍 is launching at Enclave Projects
Join them for the launch to find out more this Sunday 15 October 18:00 - 20:00
Enclave 1-2, 50 Resolution Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AL
The studio will be activated during the launch with a durational mixed reality performance featuring Yem Gel, Scrabulous Anomaly & Scald + Black Arrows.
𝘼𝙡𝙩_𝙍 is a state of the art facility for artist development, collaboration, experimentation, and commissioned projects. Providing a unique opportunity for artists to learn and get experimental with this technology, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in this field.
The studio is kitted out with a 7x3m LED screen, tracking technologies for cameras and props, motion capture suits and other essential film equipment for capturing live-action, physical sets and virtual environments simultaneously, all of which will enable artists to visualise and direct scenes in real-time, at real scale — a process which varies radically from green screen technology, seamlessly blending the virtual and physical, using real-time 3D creation tool Unreal Engine.
𝘼𝙡𝙩_𝙍 will initially run as a programme of revolving ‘Seasons’ with new physical sets and virtual environments developed and installed every 6 months. A carefully curated roster of artists will be commissioned to create new collaborative mixed-reality projects - including live public events, moving image, artist film and live-streamed performances - responding to each Season’s overarching theme.
𝘼𝙡𝙩_𝙍 was conceived and developed by artist-run organisation Gossamer Fog

Deptford X Festival Commissioned Artist: Raheel Khan Exhibits at Enclave
Deptford X will be occupying Enclave 9 for this years Deptford X festival, showcasing one of their commissioned artists Raheel Khan.
His solo show ‘Hum Drum’ opens this Friday 22 September 18:00 - 21:00, the exhibition continues until Sunday 1 October with a closing night performance.
Raheel Khan’s commission is a sonic exploration of infrastructure, constant movement, and the labour of those belonging to migrant and diasporic communities. The seed of his research began by making recordings of taxi workers in Manchester. For Khan, these anecdotal sound and environmental fragments are rooted in politics, history, cartography and social phenomena. Khan’s Deptford X commission sees him experiment with removing visual stimuli completely, weaving a narrative thread through these collected and collaged sounds.
Raheel Khan is an artist and musician who’s practice explores the interstices between sound,music and installation. Originally studying Economics, Raheel has moved towards a practice that explores the abstraction in personal narratives through various forms of composition. He is interested in repetitive motions, vacant infrastructures and geometric design, alternating and exchanging between these elements as a starting point to make his work. He is currently in the first year of his MFA at Goldsmiths.

Event at lake on the 4 February: ACT III -The Prototype - Artist’s Talk and Live Sound Performance
lake invites you to an artist’s talk, followed by a live intervention that will transform the current installation of The Prototype into a meta-instrument using field recordings, contact mics, tape loops and a spatial sound environment. In this closing event to the exhibition, publishers Folium will interact with the installation and perform an improvised sound piece in response to the work.
The current installation is a new adaptation of Eugenie Shinkle and Callum Beaney’s collaborative work The Prototype – a project that explores photographic abstraction alongside the affinities between sound and vision. Originally exhibited in 2021, The Prototype was subsequently made into a book designed and published by London-based imprint Folium, and released in September 2022. Both the original work and the book are inspired by the chaotic and abrasive sounds of noise music. lake’s response – which uses sculpture, computer vision, and noise-based algorithms – reconstructs the book's artefacts into an immersive installation.
Artist’s talk 18:00-19:00
Live performance 19:15 onwards
