Alongside the PSi conference is the Ludus Festival, which includes Lo Monstre, a large animatronic insect-like animal walking through the streets of Leeds, and A Meadow Meander, immersing audiences in an ecological labyrinth.
On the streets of London, Lucian Bourjeily's work 66 Minutes in Damascus, during which the audience members are placed as a group of tourists visiting the Syrian capital and are arrested by the Syrian secret service, will be studied for its carbon efficiency.
The Edinburgh Film Festival starts on Wednesday. Dr. Seuss' Lorax, Paul the Psychic Octopus, animals in captivity, the coal roads of China and the landscape of Fukushima all feature.
