You are very welcome to #end_of_empire by Eva Sajovic, an interactive, site-specific installation of knitted photographs with touch sensors and an AI-generated musical score from Nicola Privato.
The exhibition will take place upstairs in the Technology Centre, Carr Road, Nelson, a space which has not been open to the public for many years.
Eva Sajovic, artist-in-residence at In-Situ, has taken inspiration from Lancashire's rich industrial heritage and worked with local community members to create this installation with the British Textile Biennial 2023.
The project features four large-scale machine-knitted columns which include touch-sensitive AI generated sounds taken from interviews and sound files provided by residents. Audiences members are encouraged to interact with and 'play' the textiles.
The project is a co-commission between In-Situ and the British Textile Biennial 2023, supported by This is Nelson with Town Deal funding.
Here are the ways you can experience the work:
Visit the exhibition, 29 September to 29 October, 10am – 4pm
Attend a free workshop, Saturdays and Sundays - 29 September to 29 October, 10am – 4pm
These family-friendly workshops are a chance to contribute your own machine-knitted words responding to the exhibition’s themes of climate change, community and colonialism.
Attend a free public performance, Saturday 30 October, 4pm to 4.30pm
During this performance, the textiles will transform into a complex musical instrument controlled by participants’ touch and gestures. The event includes a Q&A with Eva Sajovic and AI collaborator Nicola Privato.

As we begin to enter the winter season, National Energy Action (NEA) believes energy advice is crucial amid the ongoing energy and cost-of-living crises. We want to help equip frontline domestic energy advisers and those supporting clients in fuel poverty with the necessary tools and most up-to-date information so they can offer effective support. This energy adviser bootcamp, run by the NEA training and delivery teams, has been designed to address the challenges and complexities of assisting those in need during the colder months and to give a refresher on the most salient points of advice delivery in the face of the energy and broader cost-of-living crises. This webinar also aims to provide knowledge on government-led measures and schemes for householders.
We’ll also be devoting time to acknowledging that frontline advice delivery can be extremely challenging, and taking some time to look at mental health resilience and strategies around self-care over high stress periods.
This is a free online session, held via Zoom.
