In January 2013, The Factory launched Season One, a new programme of activity inspired by the work of Vicki Bennett (aka People Like Us). Vicki Bennett is an artist who specialises in animating and reconstructing collages from found material, giving a witty and dark view of popular culture with a surrealist edge. Pixel Palace has commissioned Vicki to develop a new work, Gesture Piece – a film for live improvisers.
The Factory’s work in progress for Season One can be seen on the group's tumblr.
Each season, The Factory works with a range of emerging and established artists to bring in exciting new skills and knowledge to help develop the work in progress by the participants.
Welcome to the website for Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema’s digital art programme, which ran from 2008-2014. Here you can explore our archive of exciting art commissions and exhibitions, as well as the artists we worked with over that time.
