80º N by Gibson/Martelli
13/12/2014 - 08/02/2015
QUAD
QUAD presents a trilogy of works by artists Gibson/Martelli. 80º N is the result of a four year research project that centres on Arctic exploration. The 80º North parallel is the line of latitude where the Polar region begins. The Gibson/Martelli trilogy considers this navigational concept from three different perspectives:    

In Search of Abandoned responds to a marker on the Google Maps for Spitsbergen that is labelled ‘Abandoned’. The artists sought to rediscover this location, both physically during a residency Martelli attended in Svalbard, and also through a computer generated virtual experience.

White Island draws on S. A. Andrée’s doomed Polar balloon expedition of 1897. Attempting to reach the  Pole, Andrée’s balloon crashed on the ice near Kvitøya (White Island). The three expedition members perished, and their final campsite was only located in 1930. Consulting textual and photographic documentation left by the original expedition members, Gibson/Martelli built a computer generated world using height map data and game engine technology.

In Perfect Circle, a 100 year old Dutch sailing vessel, *Noorderlicht*, makes a 360º turn in an attempt to describe a perfect circle in the sea near the Monacobreen Glacier.

In its attention to the expansive frozen lands and seas of ice, the exhibition contemplates the overwhelming might of nature, its beauty and its vulnerability. In each project, the artists depart from classical representations of heroic voyages of discovery enabled by engineering mastery. Gibson/Martelli invite the viewer to observe the Arctic from a first-person perspective. Employing immersive techniques from virtual reality and video games, the viewer’s panoramic gaze is transformed by individual agency. In these spaces science & fiction merge, addressing the position of the self in relation to nature and technology - imagined & experienced views of place where invention and memory collide.

Derby College Press Release

16.12.14 dc11171verger
Derby College Starts Search For Apprentice Verger
Derby College has launched a unique recruitment drive to find an Apprentice Verger to work at Derby Cathedral.
The young person will complete customer service qualifications with the College as well as the Church of England Guild of Vergers diploma alongside paid work at £151.60 a week plus additional bonuses for evening and weekend work.
The diverse job on offer includes liaising with the thousands of visitors to the Cathedral, supporting with the security and upkeep of the building and setting up and taking part in services and events including operating PA and lighting equipment.
Derby Cathedral Assistant Curate Revd Andy Trenier explained: “Derby Cathedral is a fast paced, and exciting place to work.
“We are open for the whole community 365 days a year and the Apprentice Verger will be an important part of the team welcoming one and all to the Cathedral for a wide variety of purposes.
“We have also received funding from Arts Council England and the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund which have given us the equipment and opportunities to increase our capacity and potential as a performance and events venue.
“The Apprentice Verger will therefore greatly enhance the capacity of the team here to deliver these events.
“We are looking for someone with an appetite to learn, to remain positive and cheerful even under pressure, be strong team player and have naturally good interpersonal skills.
“They also need to be comfortable working with the widest cross section of the public and in a religious environment.
“We already have two apprentices amongst our 30 staff who work across several business areas and charities and they continue to contribute greatly to the organisation so we know that this structured learning and employment programme works.
“We are delighted to be working with Derby College who will handle the recruitment and training of this position and I hope that young people will recognise that this is a fantastic opportunity to learn some valuable skills in a dynamic and supportive environment.”
Derby College Business Development Director April Hayhurst said: “This is a unique opportunity for a special person to work at the heart of one the regions’ best known institutions.
“It is definitely one of the more unusual apprenticeship roles that we have worked on but I am confident that we will be able to find the right candidate for the Cathedral and support the young person onto the first rung of what will be a fascinating career ladder.
“The diverse skills and experience that the successful candidate gains will open many doors for them in a wide range of future careers.”

The deadline for applications is 15 January. For more information about this and all the apprenticeship opportunities available through Derby College, please contact The Apprenticeship Team amy.frankland@derby-college.ac.uk or visit http://www.derby-college.ac.uk/index.php/apprenticeships.html and click the link to current vacancies.

80º N by Gibson/Martelli
13/12/2014 - 08/02/2015
QUAD
QUAD presents a trilogy of works by artists Gibson/Martelli. 80º N is the result of a four year research project that centres on Arctic exploration. The 80º North parallel is the line of latitude where the Polar region begins. The Gibson/Martelli trilogy considers this navigational concept from three different perspectives:    

In Search of Abandoned responds to a marker on the Google Maps for Spitsbergen that is labelled ‘Abandoned’. The artists sought to rediscover this location, both physically during a residency Martelli attended in Svalbard, and also through a computer generated virtual experience.

White Island draws on S. A. Andrée’s doomed Polar balloon expedition of 1897. Attempting to reach the  Pole, Andrée’s balloon crashed on the ice near Kvitøya (White Island). The three expedition members perished, and their final campsite was only located in 1930. Consulting textual and photographic documentation left by the original expedition members, Gibson/Martelli built a computer generated world using height map data and game engine technology.

In Perfect Circle, a 100 year old Dutch sailing vessel, *Noorderlicht*, makes a 360º turn in an attempt to describe a perfect circle in the sea near the Monacobreen Glacier.

In its attention to the expansive frozen lands and seas of ice, the exhibition contemplates the overwhelming might of nature, its beauty and its vulnerability. In each project, the artists depart from classical representations of heroic voyages of discovery enabled by engineering mastery. Gibson/Martelli invite the viewer to observe the Arctic from a first-person perspective. Employing immersive techniques from virtual reality and video games, the viewer’s panoramic gaze is transformed by individual agency. In these spaces science & fiction merge, addressing the position of the self in relation to nature and technology - imagined & experienced views of place where invention and memory collide.

Derby College Press Release

16.12.14 dc11171verger
Derby College Starts Search For Apprentice Verger
Derby College has launched a unique recruitment drive to find an Apprentice Verger to work at Derby Cathedral.
The young person will complete customer service qualifications with the College as well as the Church of England Guild of Vergers diploma alongside paid work at £151.60 a week plus additional bonuses for evening and weekend work.
The diverse job on offer includes liaising with the thousands of visitors to the Cathedral, supporting with the security and upkeep of the building and setting up and taking part in services and events including operating PA and lighting equipment.
Derby Cathedral Assistant Curate Revd Andy Trenier explained: “Derby Cathedral is a fast paced, and exciting place to work.
“We are open for the whole community 365 days a year and the Apprentice Verger will be an important part of the team welcoming one and all to the Cathedral for a wide variety of purposes.
“We have also received funding from Arts Council England and the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund which have given us the equipment and opportunities to increase our capacity and potential as a performance and events venue.
“The Apprentice Verger will therefore greatly enhance the capacity of the team here to deliver these events.
“We are looking for someone with an appetite to learn, to remain positive and cheerful even under pressure, be strong team player and have naturally good interpersonal skills.
“They also need to be comfortable working with the widest cross section of the public and in a religious environment.
“We already have two apprentices amongst our 30 staff who work across several business areas and charities and they continue to contribute greatly to the organisation so we know that this structured learning and employment programme works.
“We are delighted to be working with Derby College who will handle the recruitment and training of this position and I hope that young people will recognise that this is a fantastic opportunity to learn some valuable skills in a dynamic and supportive environment.”
Derby College Business Development Director April Hayhurst said: “This is a unique opportunity for a special person to work at the heart of one the regions’ best known institutions.
“It is definitely one of the more unusual apprenticeship roles that we have worked on but I am confident that we will be able to find the right candidate for the Cathedral and support the young person onto the first rung of what will be a fascinating career ladder.
“The diverse skills and experience that the successful candidate gains will open many doors for them in a wide range of future careers.”

The deadline for applications is 15 January. For more information about this and all the apprenticeship opportunities available through Derby College, please contact The Apprenticeship Team amy.frankland@derby-college.ac.uk or visit http://www.derby-college.ac.uk/index.php/apprenticeships.html and click the link to current vacancies.
