New horizon

We Come in Peace

It is time for change and movement, after a lot of thought and creative, chaotic pondering. Next week, the 27th of October, Cat Eyed People’s Playground will rise to the sky and go on a journey south, and land in Copenhagen. During the following twelve months we will be located at Onkel Dannys Plads and will collaborate with Råhuset. It is a dream come true.

We leave Gothenburg and Masthuggskajen with sadness, it has been a brilliant place and we have met a lot of wonderful people, had inspiring talks and fun in rain, sunshine and snow. But now it is time for new adventures. To move on has always been part of the plan with CEPP. We a nervous, excited and soooo ready to kick it in Copenhagen – meet new people, get inspired and challenged and to have fun in-between.

Copenhagen – We come in peace!

Ars Electronica, the past summer and the future

 

The summer passed way to fast and it has been a few months of catching up after our workshop in Bergen. Currently we are working on a larger physical 3-D installation that hopefully will meet the public before the end of the year.

During September we got the opportunity to visit Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria a got loads of new inspiration. Traveling back to Gothenburg we unfortunately was informed that Cat Eyed People’s Playground must move already before the end of October and at present we are trying to get all settled and find a new site for our workshop, events and exhibitions. So at present everything except looking for a new location has come to a stand, but we hope to be back in ‘business’ by the beginning of November.

We are happy to announce that Cat Eyed People’s Playground will be hanging around in Gothenburg at Masthuggskajen during 2017. If it will be for the whole year we do not know yet, but count on us until after the summer.

Due to not knowing we have not been able to plan ahead and right now we are working hard with WordJam Norden that will take place on the 11 of February (next Saturday) at Brunnen close to Masthuggskajen.

With out promising anything we are planning three exhibitions at the Playground between May and October plus at spring opening in March/April. But as soon as everything is set a program will appear here and on Facebook.

Looking forward to many new meetings at Masthuggskajen.

Fun and a bit cold

 

Spent the Saturday at Cat Eyed People’s Playground with Slot Car Music Part II. Great fun and nice to have the company of Invisible Sounds and Göteborg Art Sounds (GAS festivalen) at Masthuggskajen. The day was rainy, grey and cold. We got stuck in the rain so we were not ready to open until 1 pm (not 12 as planned) but after that the time run by quickly.

People enjoyed having a go at the track and the synthesisers and even though the track was a bit smaller than last time the sound got really great, almost mediative as the strings of the ‘guitar’ was played and the drums drummed on. Everyone was happy including us 😀

Slot Car Music Part II

The autumn is here but at Cat Eyed People’s Playground we will try to keep the warm summer-spirit at least until December.  This Saturday we will do a part two with Slot Car Music. At the same time the GAS-festival will present the work Invisible Sounds Anders Hultqvist, Stefan Östersjö and Per Sjösten at Masthuggskajen beside us.
