Take a Byte in the UK


Opening today and running through March 16 in Sheffield, England, is the latest edition of "Lovebytes," an international gathering of artists working with the newest of media. Special events fill the calendar, including panels and workshops. Check out "Search Engine Cinema," which features online moving image works discovered randomly on the Web, including sweet Flash animations and cool DV mini-epics. Or listen to the "laptop punk" of Sicilian musician Massimo. While you're at it, witness a performance by renowned Brit sound artist Scanner, best known for incorporating scanned mobile phone conversations into his works.
