Gazelli Digital Art House Residency (1.1.2018)

Delighted to be the resident of Gazelli Digital Art House this January, where I will be showing work-in-progress material and elements of the developing VR and 360° sound project /sɑːm/ [Psalm.].

Briefly about /sɑːm/ [Psalm.]

Appeals to emotion and personal belief and the dismissal of objective truths are the hallmarks of the politics of our time, and a powerful tool in the dissemination of extremist propaganda. The boundaries between fact and fiction, between right and wrong, are muddled. Our ability to make decisions on a sound foundation is compromised, undermining the very idea of freedom.

/sɑːm/ [Psalm.] tackles the issue by looking at the deployment of technology and digital aesthetics to influence, shape and manipulate beliefs, and by seeking to identify a counter-narrative.

The VR and 360° sound work is part of an evolving thematic project called /ˈhaʃtaɡ/ [#ashtag.] that marks the inauguration of a [futuristic] protest faith movement. 

/sɑːm/ [Psalm.] is developed with the support of Betalab, UKVR, Ravensbourne and Arts Council England.
