Artist Bettina Fung invites you to join her for a special closing event, as she completes a month-long durational performance and closes the Gathering Space in her interactive digital artwork The Sea Changes Into Words.
For this event, participants will meet on Zoom to reflect on the work and discuss their experiences of it, before gathering one last time to read, respond and make final marks in the Gathering Space. By then it will have grown and changed over the course of the previous thirty days.
To signify the closing and archiving of the shared, collaborative space, participants will perform a collective activity, bringing something from the digital realm into the physical world. Participants will need to bring their own squares of paper for the activity; for guidance on preparing your paper please visit https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Square-Sheet-of-Paper
This event is free to attend, but advance booking is required. A Zoom Meeting link will be sent to the email address used for booking.

Before entering The Sea Changes Into Words, Aspex would like all visitors to be aware that the Gathering Space may, at some times of day, be unmonitored. It's therefore recommended that under 18s only enter the online Gathering Space with the supervision of an adult.
Aspex and Bettina Fung (the artist) are committed to creating a welcoming, accepting and safe environment for all visitors. You may encounter fellow participants in the Gathering Space and we encourage mutual respect, collaboration and exchange. This is a collaborative space with contributions made by many participating individuals. Some views and opinions stated here may not reflect the beliefs of Aspex and the artist, and should not be deemed as reflective of their position. This is also a space that appreciates the coexistence of similarities and differences and again we encourage all participants to be respectful of different cultural practices, attitudes and beliefs.
Any derogatory language, personal attacks, violence and threats of violence, unwelcome sexual content, racism, transphobia, homophobia, ageism, sexism, ableism, body shaming, disruptive behaviour and harassment of any form will not be tolerated. Any inappropriate content or incidences of cyber crime found in the Gathering Space should be reported to Aspex immediately.
The Sea Changes Into Words is best experienced on a computer as some features of the game may not work as intended on a tablet or mobile device.
Most players take around 30 minutes to reach the Gathering Space but you may want to spend longer exploring the building.
