Curator and artist Simon Poulter will show excerpts from ‘Picnic in Space’ – a rare McLuhan film – alongside interviews recorded with people who knew McLuhan and his work in this free informal presentation at the Pervasive Media Studio. He will also link McLuhan’s book ‘Understanding Media’ with current media theory, arguing that while McLuhan’s work remains unorthodox and disliked among academics, it still has an enduring interest to artists and those interested in networked and locative media.

A day of panel discussions at Watershed which explored McLuhan’s ideas in relation to the current explosion of digital media and looking at what we can learn about the 21st century media landscape by viewing it through McLuhan’s “rear view mirror”.
