Event Title: TL;DR - #RT_samplr & Chroma Key Aesthetics
Participating Artists: Claire Bushby & Steven Tapping
Venue: Heathcote Museum & Gallery, Swan House, 56 - 60 Duncraig Road,
Description: TL;DR explores issues resulting from engagement with
contemporary information and communication technologies in the context of a
new geopoliticised world. When we use networked information technologies we
are exposed to a spectrum of material sourced from many different places
that collides together and as individuals we want to make sense of this.
Claire Bushby and Steven Tapping reflect on those desires through the use of
social engagement, the Internet and multimedia devices mixed with
installation and even cross-stitch as tools that invite participation and
discussion. Through the participative focus of the projects in TL;DR Bushby
and Tapping attempt to break down the division between artist and audience
in a world where social media platforms and the Internet in general enable
everyone to be a creative content producer.
Dates: 25 January 2014 to 23 February 2014.
Opening Times: Tues-Fri 10am-3pm; Sat-Sun 12-4pm.
