At Rewire 2020, which was unfortunately cancelled due to the global pandemic, we planned to present the 39th edition of iii’s No Patent Pending series. Three of the artists who were planning to present works; Pelle Schilling, Gabriela Prochazka & Jesus Canuto Iglesias, were artists-in-residence at iii in Spring 2020. Because of the lockdown they spent the residency at home becoming ‘virtual artists in residence’. Whilst their performances at No Patent Pending have been postponed, the three artists have filmed demonstrations of their projects, and discussed them, the results of which can now be viewed below.

She’s interested in the intersection of light design, audiovisual performances, club culture, and fine arts. See her discussing her new work here:
Jesus Canuto Iglesias is a multidisciplinary artist and fresh graduate from the Artscience Interfaculty who creates compositions for self-made, digitally controlled mechanical apparatuses that encompass the presentation space and the observer. Jesus demonstrates and discusses his new work here:
