Making art for a change
For this talk we are delighted to be joined by British/ Colombian Artist Matthew Plummer-Fernández. Matthew will be sharing his latest work-in-progress & ideas around digital art practice in response to the climate crisis.
This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel.
British/Colombian artist Matthew Plummer-Fernández's interest in the interrelation of algorithmic systems, popular culture, and contemporary issues, forms a varied body of work influenced by the traditions of Generative Art, Critical Design, and Internet Art, that he describes as algopop.
In this talk Matthew Plummer-Fernández will be discussing new motivations and shifts in his art practice that act in response to the climate crisis. Matthew's recent works include experiments in Augmented Reality, agroecology, willow shaping, online community building, and an essay about cryptocurrencies embedded inside a JPEG.
Join us on Fri 23rd April, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
