Furtherfield on Resonance FM – March 23th 2011

Marc Interviews Penny Travlou and Irini interviews Karsten SchmidtDaniel Hirschmann.
Every Wednesday – 7-8pm, Listen live: http://resonancefm.com

This week the tables are turned, and special guest Penny Travlou will be asking Marc Garrett questions about Furtherfield.

Penny Travlou is a cultural geographer and ethnographer and works as Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Edinburgh College of Art. Penny’s research is interdisciplinary with a special interest on the politics of public space, urban critical theory and digital ethnography. As a co-investigator at ELMCIP, Penny conducts an ethnographic study of networked creative communities. At the moment, Penny is doing her fieldwork on Furtherfield, spending time at the Furtherfield Gallery with the current crafters and residency artists (AOS) and setting up interviews with different crew members, crafters and visiting artists. Since ethnography is “a decoding operation”, Penny is learning the language, verbal and symbolic, of the Furtherfield community and, hopefully, to acquire an insider’s perspective.

Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann, will be discussing their project ‘Technology Will Save Us’ with Irini Papdimitriou & Jonathan Munro. A haberdashery for technology and alternative education space dedicated to helping people to produce anth d not just consume technology. www.technologywillsaveus.org

Furtherfield on Resonance FM – March 2nd 2011

Marc Interviews Stuart Bowditch and Irini & Jonathan will be interviewing Stanza.
Every Wednesday – 7-8pm, Listen live: http://resonancefm.com

Stanza, is a London based British artist who specializes in interactive art, networked spaces, installations and performances. Stanza’s artworks explore artistic and technical opportunities to enable new aesthetic perspectives, experiences and perceptions within context of architecture, data spaces and online environments, crossing borders between artistic, technological and scientific sectors.

His award winning online projects have been invited for exhibition in digital festivals around the world. Work has centered on the idea of the building as a new display system and various projects have been made using live data, the use of live data in architectural space, and how it can be made into meaningful representations. See ‘Publicity’, ‘Robotica’, ‘Sensity’, as well as a whole series of work manipulating real time CCTV data to making artworks with them: See, ‘Velocity’, ‘Authenticity’, ‘Urban Generation’. These works reform the data, work with the idea of bringing data from outside into the inside, and then present it back out again in open ended systems where the public is often engaged in or directly embedded in the artwork. http://www.stanza.co.uk
