Beige and Paper Rad Performance
Friday 17th, 9 till late

'What Joe Satriani is on guitar, The 8-Bit Construction Set are on Atari!' Drax (Bodenstandig)
'It rocks.' - Matthew Herbert
'... a testimony to nerdiness.' - The New York Times
'... mouthwatering slice of retro genius' - Pelicanneck

For the first time ever in the UK White Diamond Projects brings together the artist/performance groups Paper Rad and Beige for two nights of analogue and digital confusion with old Atari and Commodore 8-bit computers, homemade 'Star Trek'-like films, mind bending animations, sophisticated electronic dance music made on retro technology and an answering-machine message from a band member's mother.

At once affirmative and critical, the videos of artist collective Paper Rad synthesize popular material from television, the internet, video games and advertising, reprogramming these references with an exuberantly neo-primitivist digital aesthetic. The group's far-flung members hail from Texas, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, and also work in sound and music, clothing design, photography, comics, hand-drawn books, and writing. The group presents ongoing Paper Rad activities and output via an eye-popping web site (
