About this Event
Artists are experts at making relevant, moving works in whatever way that they choose to, but there is pressure at the moment to suddenly produce art work in forms that we don't know. In the rush to commit to making online work in order to survive, there hasn't been much time to explore and get to know new mediums, and new contexts.
Rhiannon will share her process developing projects for both the built environment and online, including Poems Made from Words Found in the Bin, created with Aspex in 2019 and part of The Slow GIF Movement. By exploring some of the different (free to access) digital tools available to get to know and try creating with, we will begin to think about what "digital mediums" can be and what "online" as a location for our art to exist in might mean for our own individual practice.
Rhiannon Armstrong makes work under the lifelong series title Instructions for Empathetic Living. She is recipient of the Adrian Howells Award for Intimate Performance and received a BBC Culture in Quarantine commission this summer for her audio work 'The Soothing Presence of Strangers'. www.rhiannonarmstrong.net
