Fri 29 Oct 13:00-14:00 at Pervasive Media Studio & YouTube Live
Live Illustration Expanded
In this lunchtime talk, Studio Resident Camille Aubry will introduce the R&D project Live Illustration Expanded and explore how live illustration can transform physical and virtual environments and be a performance in itself.
We are delighted to announce the return of in person Lunchtime Talks! Our talks will now be both in the building and streamed live, so you can join us from the comfort of the Studio or the comfort of your own screen, in your own space.
Capacity will be limited and we are asking people to book in for the talks, if you can. Please feel free to turn up on the day, although we can't guarantee there will be a space.
Book a ticket here.
This weeks talk comes from Camille Aubry, a French live illustrator and cartoonist based in Bristol. She is a Resident of the Pervasive Media Studio since 2019, where she explores how to take her live drawing practice to the next level with the help of creative technologies.
In this lunchtime talk, she will introduce Live Illustration Expanded, a R&D project gratefully supported by an Arts Council England DYCP grant. Through this opportunity she attempts to develop an enhanced live illustration practice and make an ambitious shift in her ability to produce and support stage events.
Currently the live illustration practice (also known as scribing) is mostly known as an add-on to corporate events. Scribes like Camille are brought in to document the event as it happens, and work up visually arresting summaries for distribution afterwards. There is an under-explored potential in how live illustration can transform physical and virtual environments, and be a performance in its own right. Camille explores this through two prototype performances that she will reveal during this talk, one physical and one virtual, and is lucky to be surrounded by a fabulous team.
Join us, on Friday 29th October, 13:00 - 14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards. Come to the Studio, or join us on Youtube Here
