Speaker

Glen Walton

I'm a performer, theatre maker, musician, puppeteer, producer, set builder, DJ and all round DIY tinkerer! Over the last 13 years I've collaborated on heaps of projects developing both theatrical and musical creations.

Glen comes from a more traditional theatre, comedy and music background so it has been a strange and winding path that has led him to his current exploration of experimental digital instruments and collective musical play.

In this talk he will discuss, play in public spaces and the development of work that embraces the spirit of DIY. Glen will also discuss findings from his recent Masters thesis which identifies ways to encourage the journey from 'observer' to 'participant' within public installations. Oh, and there will be some hands-on demos as well!

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