Asynthome is a recent project by Bridport boy Luke Bennett now based in Berlin. Asynthome is an audio-visual performance in which Transforma and Yro turn the stage into a workshop of experimentation. A series of modular stations with prepared objects, light boxes, interactive sculptures and live cameras are used by the three players or operators' to create visual experiments which are projected directly on to the screen above them.

camera-clubBridport Camera Club meet fortnightly from September to April at The Chancery House, South Street,  Bridport.

Meetings are structured round, visiting speakers, competition nights, members nights, and joint meetings with other local clubs. We also organise education sessions covering some of the basics. Members are only too willing to pass on their skills.

Field trips are arranged throughout the year.  The club also mounts annual exhibitions.

New members are always welcome.
