Very sorry to have overlooked this interesting invitation until now, when it's a bit too late to accept. Good luck.

Dear Paul Levy
From 18th to 23rd of September 2010, a new exhibition is opening at the Centre for Creative Collaboration, London.
Grey Area is the graduating show of the MFA Computational Studio Arts, Goldsmiths, University of London.
Grey Area re-thinks and re-mediates contemporary art practices in relation to new technologies. Jack Burnham (1970) predicted that our relationship with art in the Information Age would evolve from a ‘one-way’ process to a ‘two-way’ dialogue. Taking this
challenge as a starting point, the works exhibited within Grey Area operate in this dialogical space.

You are warmly invited to the private view on Friday 17th September 2010 from 6 - 9pm, at
16 Acton Street, London, WC1X 9NG
