This is a live webinar event hosted by the Digital Arts Studios on Thursday 11th February 2021 at 3pm.
As the Net//Work residency drew to an end, Digital Arts Studios showcased how the four participating artists progressed over the period. We hosted a live webinar event to learn more about their project concepts and processes, and to take part in Q&A sessions.
Each artist presented their work during the residency:
Rita Adib’s project explores the relationship between body and time via her body and camera as recorder. “How can time be a border? How does the body perceive time as a barrier? And is it possible to liberate the moment from its physical space?” Rita presented her video performance and experimentation with installation and video mapping.
Mohamed A Gawad presented, in video format, part of his research on the conditions which shaped a certain period of composer Dimitri Shostakovich's work, and the structural markers embedded in that period, via excerpts from his contested memoir.
During the Net//Work residency Maya Chowdhry has been investigating eco-anxiety and experimenting with the use of wearable sensors in live art. She shared excerpts of work created during the residency; including a prototype of an audio piece that explores climate justice, and which reacts to the emotional responses of the audience.
We joined Tim Shaw on a soundwalk around Lucerne in Switzerland. Wearing a webcam on his chest, Tim used his specially made system to mix and process the diverse environmental sounds and signals of the city. To help him uncover new data streams he carried a collection of sensors, which read various characteristics of the environments he moved through.
In partnership with the British Council, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast and Momentum, Berlin.
The event occrred on Thursday 11th February 2021. Time 3pm (UK/GMT).
