Speaker

Angela Davies

Angela is an interdisciplinary artist who employs traditional processes with creative technologies to create responsive lighting, sculpture and installation art.

Newly joined Studio resident and artist Angela Davies will present SpyGlass - an immersive interactive robotic light navigator, a synthesis of both traditional arts practice and current technologies.

The light sculpture was developed during her participation on the Arts and Technology creative accelerator programme at MadLab - Manchester Digital Laboratory. Angela will share insights and experiences of the programme and how it has led her to further explore scale and interactivity for her current project Light Choreographies.

During the talk, Angela will present opportunities for the audience to engage and interact with the sculpture which places the user at the heart of the experience.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.

Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.

Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.

After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm.

Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk. Send an email to studio@watershed.co.uk to book your place on a tour.

Fri 26 Jun 13:00-14:00

We live in a complex world, but only some problems are Wicked Problems. Hard to define and with no clear solution, they challenge the very institutions we turn to in a crisis. supersum takes a different approach.
