Blast Theory’s newest work A Machine To See With is included in the New Frontier Programme of the Sundance Film Festival, Park City, Utah from January 20th – 30th.

A Machine To See With is a work for pedestrians and their mobile phones and is the inaugural ‘locative cinema’ commission awarded in 2009 by partners ZER01: The Art & Technology Network, Sundance Film Festival‘s New Frontiers Initiative and Banff New Media Institute at The Banff Centre.

“As filmmaking rapidly evolves through the creative marriage of technology and storytelling, New Frontier opens a window into the future,” said Robert Redford, Sundance Institute Founder and President.”It’s a thrill for me to provide these unique artists with a new platform, a departure from their traditional art venues, and to watch Festival audiences challenge their preconceived notions about visual expression. And, as I contemplate the role the Institute can play in this evolution, I challenge my own notions as well.”
