Blink is the first of a series of open submission projects set to take place annually at Gasworks. The project has been led by a desire to see new work and to do so through a more transparent and democratic method of research. Gasworks is committed to working with emerging artists and such a project enables us to connect with artists directly at a grassroots level.

This Spring Gasworks opened the floodgates inviting submissions from artists working with animation across the UK. The deluge of responses has revealed some highly original works from practitioners across the country many of whom were previously unknown to Gasworks. These three events will explore the idea of animation and demonstrate the scope of work being produced within that field. For practitioners they may also provide invaluable exposure to a new and wider audience. The selectors: Haluk Akak├že, who has exhibited widely at venues such as PS1, New York; Istanbul Biennial; Kunst-Werke, Berlin; and is currently in The British Art Show 6.
Nav Haq, curator at Gasworks.
Saskia Olde Wolbers, winner of Beck’s Futures 2004 and also currently participating in The British Art Show 6.
