Roy Ascott: Form Has Behaviour

Kate Sloan (Developer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Roy Ascott (b. 1934) is a pioneering British artist who has worked throughout his career with cybernetics, telematics and communication theories. This focused exhibition sets out to establish Ascott’s innovative work in the narrative of British sculpture.

Roy Ascott: Form has Behaviour brings together four of his interactive sculptures made in the 1960s – which he termed ‘analogue structures’ alongside his ‘Manifesto for Cybernetic Art’ (1963). The term analogue has its roots in the Greek analogos, meaning proportionate; in its contemporary application, it expresses the ability of a mechanism to physically represent the quantity it measures.
