Every Wednesday – 7-8pm, Listen live:

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.

Karsten Schmidt (aka toxi) is a London based computational designer merging code, design, art & craft skills. Originally from East Germany and starting in the deep end of the early 8-bit demo scene, for the past 2 decades he’s been adopting a trans-disciplinary way of working and been laterally involved in a wide range of digital disciplines. Daniel Hirschmann is a South Africa born artist who uses technology, relationships and spontaneity to enable his artistic practice.
