Net//Work residency 2021


This was a live webinar event hosted by the Digital Arts Studios on Thursday 11th February 2021 at 3pm. As the event is now over, the Event registration link has been removed.

As the Net//Work residency draws to an end, Digital Arts Studios is delighted to showcase how the four participating artists have progressed over the period. Join us for this live webinar event to learn more about their project concepts and processes, and take part in Q&A sessions.

We invite you to register your interest via the Eventbrite link below. A Zoom webinar invite will then be emailed to you prior to the online event.

Each artist will be presenting 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 will present her video performance and experimentation with installation and video mapping.

Mohamed A Gawad will present, 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 will be sharing 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.

Join Tim Shaw on a soundwalk around Lucerne in Switzerland. Wearing a webcam on his chest, Tim will use 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 will carry a collection of sensors, which will read various characteristics of the environments he moves through.

In partnership with the British Council, Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast and Momentum, Berlin.

DATE: Thursday 11th February 2021. Time 3pm (UK/GMT)
