Artist Talk – Borders, surveillance and sounds with Sophie Mallett
Mon 9 May 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Join artist Sophie Mallett for an insight in to ongoing research around borders, surveillance and sounds. The talk will navigate through a topography of competing technologies that all use sound and radio to define and confine territories. Together we'll explore the politics of control embedded in technologies of sound production and transmission.
Sophie Mallett is an artist exploring sound and the re-territorialisation of networked global economies and people. Incorporating thinking and action around borders, surveillance and sound, Mallett focuses on sounds’ intersection with affect, politics and value. Educated at London College of Communication, Open School East, and Conservatorium of Music, University of Sydney, Mallett’s practice is both interdisciplinary and collaborative.
