64 Bits: Here East 2017


Appearing as a standalone exhibition at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 64-BITS consisted of 32 historic websites and 32 examples of computer art. The show was supported by The British Library, the Centre for Computer History, Soul Labels and Aesop Agency.

More than 4,000 people came to visit 64-BITS at Here East over Easter 2017. With more than 250,000 people visiting live from Facebook and fantastic coverage from Time Out, The Evening Standard, Radio 5 Live, the Today Programme, Vice and many more, it was a huge success. Even more heartening, it was a standalone show at a relatively new venue. Thanks to everyone who came.

We couldn’t have done it without our partners – The British Library, the Centre for Computing History, Soul Labels and Aesop Agency. Thank you very much for all your help.

PS. We’re looking for a sponsor. Any forward-looking company out there that wants to show how the past shapes the future, please email sponsorship@64bits.co.uk.
