Café Curio Visual Thinking: Between Sound and Light

13 - 16 February 2013

Wednesday 13 - Saturday 16 February

Visual Thinking is an ongoing series of events presenting current research from within academic and arts institutions.

Between Sound and Light is a series of presentations and workshops about sound; specifically the sound reflected around the walls of Camden Arts Centre for the duration of the Film in Space exhibition. Over these four days, a number of participants will present unique responses to recordings of the sound of the exhibition, collected in a variety of ways and perspectives.

The responses will be productive readings, reworkings, interpretations or reinterpretations which can take any number of forms. The sound of the works in the space of the gallery will become material objects in transformation; faith to their provenance, and the authenticity, veracity or intention of the originating work is less crucial than the creative possibilities that the recordings give rise to. As such this workshop will explode the fallacy of objective documentation, opening up the possibility of manifesting the subjective and the fictional, the literal or the alchemical, the historical or the personal.

Organised by Steven Ball, Rob Mullender and Duncan White (British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design).


Events and workshops will take place daily over the course of the project. Participants include Steven Ball, Andy Birtwistle, Rob Mullender, Aura Satz, Jan Thoben, David Toop, and Duncan White. All events are free and booking is not required.
