Speaker

Tim Kindberg

Tim Kindberg's research interests lie in applying ubiquitous and mobile computing technologies to new kinds of digital media platforms.

Caroline Williams

Caroline Williams is an artist working in multi-disciplinary participatory performance. Her work often focuses on current political issues, for example the semantics of screens, migration and relationships with technology.

Casts of young people in Bristol, Kampala and Kigali communicated via social media before the event and live-streamed during it, expressing what digital connectivity means to them and discussing their similarities and differences. It was created by Caroline Williams in Bristol, working with her counterparts Brian Geza at the Mashirika performing arts group in Kigali, and Muhawenimana Sarafina in Kampala. Can You Hear Me Now was a MAYK production with funding from the British Council.

In this talk, Caroline Williams and Tim Kindberg, who created the live-streaming component, will consider the piece from several perspectives: artistic, cross-cultural, logistical and technical.
