Naho Matsuda

Naho is a German-Japanese artist based in London. Her work brings together the ordinary and the absurd to explore notions of labour, internet culture, emerging technology and the commons.

Paul Angus

Paul is a Newcastle-based creative technologist who enjoys projects that demand the amalgamation of a diverse range of technologies. With a background in linguistics and pedagogy, he’s eager to bring digital applications to these domains.

This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel

Being in public space has changed, and it has become difficult to sense how a city ‘feels’ and how to connect to the shared sentiment of a place. As part of Bristol based arts programme Control Shift , artist Naho Matsuda will be projecting collectivised streams of consciousness back onto the city, with her new work This City Is  

Through large-scale projections we see Bristol through a continuous list of updates, ranging from personal opinions to public announcements. In this lunchtime talk Naho will be joined by creative technologist Paul Angus to discuss the work, poetic approaches to data, and the process of developing a shared sentiment of a place.

Control Shift is an exciting new arts programme coming to Bristol this Autumn including three weeks of workshops, discussions, installations and screenings - online and across Bristol, UK - exploring ways to reframe and rethink our relationships with technology. You can look at the full programme here.

Join us on Fri 2nd October, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
