Collaborative making towards interactive installation. In 1964 artist Roy Ascott said: ‘The machine, largely self-regulating and highly adaptive, stands between man and his world’.
BA Fine Art Painting students from Wimbledon College of Arts will be creating new machines through which to re-collect, distribute and examine works from Tate’s collection, using the educational projects of Roy Ascott as a model. Roy Ascott talked of concepts formed and developed via visual means – reinventing syntax to navigate the inadequacies of verbal and numerate systems.
These projects will run alongside two one-hour events on each date which link our own artistic research to the Imagining Technology project.
On 8 March Alex Veness will engage the public in production using his own self-constructed scanner camera.
On 22 March Zoë Mendelson will invite the public to create the soundtrack to a collage film.
