Come and Have Your Say........
VOX POPULI : Vidocumentation by Delpha Hudson will be through ‘vox pop’
interviews, negotiated with the public at the event, through dialogue.
Audiences will be asked which digital work they most like or dislike,
and why. Drawing on the idea of 'found’ sound or footage, the vox pop
interviews will not be controlled or edited by post-production
processes, just placed on the web.
Have a look at what's on and come along if you can!
Electronic Village Galleries Penryn is part of a pilot project devised
by Kate Southworth at University College Falmouth which is supported by
Arts Council England. Electronic Village Galleries aims to develop a
distributed platform that supports artists to host new media art events
in their local village or town hall, and which links together local art
communities in Cornwall and the South West of England with network and
new media art and its global communities. It’s an experiment, so please
join in and help to shape it!
