Lunchtime Talks

In Venue Talk + Live stream

In venue in Pervasive Media Studio and live streaming online Fri 17 Dec 13:00-14:00

Tickets to Lunchtime Talks in the Pervasive Media Studio are free, but must be booked in advance as capacity is limited. If you do not arrive by 13:00 we will release your ticket. Lunchtime Talks are also streamed live on our YouTube channel, so you can tune in wherever you are.

In this Lunchtime Talk, Studio Resident Tine Bech will discuss her work creating social interaction and colour in public spaces. More than ever, our shared public spaces and town centres have the opportunity for change. At a time of rapid reflection, we should ask what place can and should be in the future?

Using examples from her practice, Tine will share ideas on the importance of ‘visual invitation to social interaction’ and will explore how play encourages audiences to move from looking to active participation.

Tine will share 'This Place in Colour' a R&D digital project that will allow people to see the environment around them through colour, using a smartphone camera. It is an action research project that aims to give people a voice and a website and manifesto for a place. It is also a tool to play and enable thoughts and feelings about a place that sometimes can be hard to articulate.

Tine Bech will be joined by Tarim, the technologist behind the creation of the web-app and the technical colour interface for 'This Place in Colour'.

About Tine Bech and Tarim

Tine Bech is a multidisciplinary artist, researcher, and lecturer with extensive practical and theoretical experience working with public art and designing for people, play and participation. She was born in Denmark, lives in London and Aarhus, and works internationally.

After the talk, you can stay at the Studio for Open Studio Fridays - join us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. The Studio provides chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Tell us what you’re up to, or allow us to facilitate conversations within the resident community. Studio staff and residents will be around to chat, answer questions, or tell you more about what we do. The open afternoons close at 17:00, sometimes with a trip to the Café & Bar.

Please note this is a hybrid event and will be live streamed so please be aware you will be in the live broadcast and recording when watching in the Studio.
