What a varied Culture Show Uncut we have for you tonight! Our animation comes from artists Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt who call themselves Semiconductor. They work with a computer to create installations and short films which represent the physical environment in fascinating, and slightly unnerving, ways. We have Semiconductor in the studio and if you miss the interview you can watch it on iPlayer for a week. Their short film Magnetic Movie samples the voices of NASA scientists to create what Semiconductor's MySpace page describes as the "secret life of invisible interplanetary magnetic fields". It's great - even though it makes me feel rather itchy. Have you enjoyed the animations we have chosen so far in the series? What about Mark Kermode's interviews with the animators in the studio?

A number of you have emailed in asking about the animation from last week which featured a cat. It was the latest in the Simon's Cat series, by Simon Tofield, and this and earlier instalments can be watched on their YouTube channel.
