Generative Environments Research Symposium
9 Dec 2017 | 2-4pm
RSVP here for the Research Symposium, all welcome.
The symposium will focus on the thematic of ‘generative environments’, in relation to the works in the exhibition Generative Environments, by graduating students from MA Sound Arts at London College of Communication, UAL. Talks will be by Tom Davis and Maria Papadomanolaki, as well as contributions from the artists and the Course Leader Thomas Gardner, chaired by Salomé Voegelin. The symposium will also be an opportunity to engage directly with the artists’ research, with the display of their research posters and through direct conversation, a unique facet of the course. It will end with a performance by Chase Coley.
Dr Tom Davis is an instrument builder, improviser and sound artist. His artistic output involves the creation of technologically-led environments for interaction.
