Event description

Description

Join us for this artist talk with Wes Goatley, who along with Tobias Revell has developed Breathing Mephitic Air - a data sonification and visualisation installation which explores new immersive methods of understanding the local and global systems of air pollution, and the data through which it is measured. This work was originally made in consultation with the Environmental Research Group at King’s College London, and shown at Somerset House, London as part of Utopia 2016 with visual production contributed by Tobias Revell.


For this year's festival Brighton Digital Festival, Creative Producer Laurence Hill and ONCA have co-commissioned Wes to produce a site specific version of Breathing Mephitic Air which measures air quality outside of ONCA gallery on one of Brighton's busiest roads. The installation will be on display between 15th September - 1st October.


Wes Goatley is a sound artist and researcher based in London, UK. His practice examines opaque power and hidden processes in data and networked technologies through installations, objects, and talks. He is currently undertaking doctoral studies through a scholarship from the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, exploring a critical data aesthetics approach to artistic practice and research. He also currently teaches sonic media theory, digital cities, and computational sonic arts practice at BA and MA levels.


This event will be British Sign Language interpreted and the main gallery is wheelchair accessible. Please note that due to the nature of the building ONCA does not have an accessible toilet, there is one gender neutral toilet up 5 steps. However, visitors are welcome to use the toilets at the North Laine pub just up the road. If you have any specific access requirements or any questions related to this please contact our Gallery Manager: lydia@onca.org.uk / 01273 607101
