Brief Description

A new £20,000 art commission to explore the vital, yet invisible, force of electricity is up for grabs from the Museum of Science and Industry, in partnership with Electricity North West and Manchester Science Festival 2018. This commission is for a brand-new art work, developed along the theme of ‘keeping you switched on’, to be included in the exhibition Electricity: The Spark of Life. The exhibition is the first headliner to be announced for Manchester Science Festival 2018. The commissioned work should explore the future demands on electricity. It could look at how innovation can support future demands, at our behaviours using and managing electricity, innovation around smart appliances, smart homes and renewable energies.
