Constructed Geographies: Cities & Stories Artist Talk
14 February 2019
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Artist talk by Judith Ricketts & Amy Zamarippa Solis.
Judith & Amy will talk about their interest in cities as a physical container for memory and as immaterial locations of data – Austin, NYC, Brighton & beyond – the stories and data they find & use to make their work.
The short talk will be followed by a group discussion with attendees on a range of subjects including:
- changes in Brighton & other cities
- cities and archival or live data and its relationship to people of colour
Drinks by donation, tickets £5 (£3 conc) available in advance via Eventbrite or on the door.
About the artists:
Judith Ricketts is an artist and researcher, making immersive interactive works from the immaterial nature of data, the body, and the city. I view the city as a series of patterns and interdependencies, arranged between the spaces of data, spatial appearances, and the biometric aesthetics of the body.
