Finale of the Big M tour!
The Big M's regional tour has finally come to an end, now its time for the Big M to go into hibernation for the winter!
The finale of On the Precipice took place at the 9th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and it went with a bang thanks to our fantastic hosts at the festival!
Alexandra Crouwers, whose work The White Hide [III] features in On the Precipice joined Kelly Richardson, artist and curator of the programme, for an artist talk at the Gymnasium Gallery, travelling all the way from Antwerp to be at the festival.
We welcomed 5 various youth groups and schools to visit The Big M - who all participated in workshops to create work inspired by On the Precipice.
And as if that wasn't enough the sunny weekend helped us attract over 500 visitors! Thanks to Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival for having us, see you again next year!
Download our free BIG M app now!
Have you seen our Big M app yet? NO! Well you should download it right now.....
The app was designed by a group of teenagers, who worked closely alongside ISIS and North East based app developers Vector 76. The app uses images from the artist’s films as triggers, when you hovers your device (smartphone or tablet) over each artist image an augmented 3D model of The Big M pops up on screen and allows you to explore the unusual structure and get a glimpse of it’s interior. It is similar to using QR codes! To find one of the trigger images click here.
You can also access loads more info about the tour, the artists and The Big M including film trailers, maps and fun facts.
The Big M app is free to download and is available from Google Play and the App Store now!

Homelands film released on DVD - buy your copy now
Zuzana Hruskova and Marek Šulík's Homelands film created during the first year of our 'Homelands' project has just been released on DVD. To order a copy please email email@example.com.
Their film documents Roma families in the west-end of Newcastle recording emotional messages in the form of videos, photographs, handwritten letters, audio recordings being carefully delivered to their relatives back in Slovakia. Responses were then filmed and the process was repeated. The result is a beautiful commentary on the reasons for migration and the consequences to families and communities.
