Stanza Cities












SEMINAR with Stanza(15 Jan, 2007, 4-5pm) Digital Studios Space, Ben Pimlott building, ground floor left. Goldsmiths, University of London, New Cross, SE14 6NW:

Stanza is AHRC Creative and Performing Arts Fellow, GDS (2006-2009). He is a London-based artist, who specialises in net art, multimedia, and electronic sounds.

The research he is undertaking as part of his AHRC Fellowship with GDS is around The Emergent City, an exploration of data within cities and how this can be represented visualized and interpreted. Data from security tracking, traffic data, and sensor data for environmental monitoring can all be interpreted as a medium to make process led artworks. The underlying theme or main research question is concerned with the organic emergence of the city.

Cities clearly have a character, but do they have a ’soul’? If so, then what can be determined about the validity of the city experience in relation to its ‘character’, or ’soul’, or spirit’?
