For the past week, three artists have been working at the ScreenLab / MediaCityUK, Salford University, an internal artist in residence initiative by Elliot Woods and Kit Turner to explore modes of perception and interaction under the theme 'Future of Broadcast'. The invited artists, Kyle McDonald (USA), Joanie Lemercier (France) and Joel Gethin Lewis (UK) have been developing open source tools and methods for future students and artists (on and off campus) to remix and re-use. This process includes contributions from a group of talented on-campus students within the arts and art-technology crossover and students are involved with not only learning, but also in the creation of new digital media techniques. The residency includes periodic quick-fire presentations and live blogging throughout the work period will also allow other students to understand the internals of how the final works are imagined and created.
Curated in collaboration with EWHA’s Cross Media Lab, Kimchi and Chips and CreativeApplications.Net, The Distortion Field is a discussion concerning the connection between artists and audiences within emerging media.
