Talk: Pete Ashton

April 8th 2015, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


BOM Fellow and artist Pete Ashton has been exploring how digital images can degrade as they travel around the internet. In this talk he discusses Sitting In Stagram, recent Instagram-based project looking at the sometimes startling effect copying and reposting on that platform has on images. Riffing off Alvin Lucier’s classic I Am Sitting In A Room he reposted the same image 90 times to see what would happen. As part of Live R&D he will be attempting to adapt the project for the gallery space.
