Happenstance is a 12 week project funded by Nesta, Arts Council England and the AHRC Digital R&D for Arts and Culture fund. Technologists were parachuted into three UK arts organisations, and the goal was simply to 'see what happens'. One of those organisations is Site Gallery in Sheffield, where the two technology residents are Leila Johnston & James Jefferies.
Leila left her London job and moved to Sheffield in April in order to take part in Happenstance. A digital content specialist, maker and broadcaster, she is firmly embedded in the geek world. James has lived in Sheffield for the last 6 years and has been a software engineer for the past 17 years. Last year he left his job and set up his own company ShedCode. As their residency draws to a close, James and Leila share some of their adventures from the last ten weeks.
