“They became members of one family, scattered over thousands of islands and in contact with each other through nothing but these ‘messages in a bottle’, sent out with no certainty at all but with the faint hope that somebody somewhere would pick them up. Messages sent out with stoical patience, without even knowing who in that infinitely vast ocean of ether would be able to listen to their call.” - ISS Astronaut Luca Parmitano http://blogs.esa.int/luca-parmitano/2013/08/13/message-in-a-bottle/
This broadcast is an alien artefact, a time capsule for a future civilisation.
Extra-Terrestrial Transmission will be comprised of online submissions from the internet and outsourced labour from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. In October, Superlative TV will transmit this message into space. As well as attempting contact with alien intelligence, the transmission reveals a pathology of the internet, and a stark reflection of life on earth.
What would you like to say to an alien intelligence about life on Earth in 2014?
Send us a message, song, video or online content. It can be something you have made yourself, or discovered online, something that you think encapsulates the world that we live in today.
Cyberspace -> Deep space
Your messages will be transmitted into space and exhibited as a multi-screen video at Enclave Projects.

**Equal Temperament : a documentary about the Peckham Chamber Orchestra ** Book your tickets to the first ever screening of Superative TV’s new film here
A public screening of the new documentary Equal Temperament with the Peckham Chamber Orchestra, a community orchestra with the aim of uniting people of all ages, backgrounds and musical abilities. The film traces the working practice of the orchestra, during rehearsals and a public concert at the Peckham Liberal Club, and offers the model of the orchestra as a metaphor for collective action.
The documentary, commissioned by Cinema 6, and filmed using cameras intended to record action sports, is shot from the point of view of different individuals in the orchestra This gesture renders a film without one protagonist, but expresses a radical number of subjectivities. Orchestras depend on a multiplicity of individuals listening to and working with one another.
The screening is free but booking is essential as places are limited.
With thanks to the Peckham Chamber Orchestra and Peckham Liberal Club.

Superlative TV is very excited to announce we will be screening a new documentary about the Peckham Chamber Orchestra at Cinema 6 next month, more details to follow soon.
There’s also a chance for others to get involved..
Cinema6 is a new neighbourhood cinema for Peckham that will run for six weeks this spring. Transforming a railway arch into a 40 seat screen, Cinema6 will show films four times a week, from classic blockbusters and family films to world cinema and the work of local artists. It will be a place to watch, discuss and learn about film and film making. We’re inviting everyone from the area to be involved in choosing which films to show and to bring ideas for creative uses of the cinema space.
