PARADIGM 2016



Congratulations Paradigm artists - Great to see such an array of works for Summerhalls first electronic art exhibition. Hope there is more to come!
— HOLLY - SUMMERHALL EXHIBITIONS MANAGER
Some Great Ideas - Love all the interactive stuff. Really enjoyed the ‘Brainwave’ thing, the motion sensor room and the virtual reality room - lost the floor. Keep up the cool work - didn’t understand how it all works but that is part of the excitement :) Good Job.
Great Exhibition! Really interesting work and well curated.
very intriguing and imaginative. Inspiring Interactive art + Thought provoking pieces.
