Brian Gibson is an artist and workshop facilitator based in the South West. He began as a self-taught photographer, but his multidisciplinary approach to creativity spans photography, publishing, mixed media art and technology.
This talk will focus on an ever-evolving series of images that weave together the enclosed world of everyday technology with the physical spaces that surround us. Reworking the materials of technology since the Covid 19 Lockdowns, Brian's multidisciplinary approach alternates between digital and analogue creative processes. His recent work merges together the architectural spaces of technology and the urban environment in which we live, where pixels and bricks converge, revealing their inexact interconnectedness.
Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 24th November 2023 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards.
