Talk: Pete Ashton
April 8th 2015, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
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.
