Digital Design Drop-in

Patrick Tresset in conversation with Paul Squires

Wednesday 24 August 2011
13.00 - 16.00
Free, drop-in. No booking required

Digital Studio, Sackler Centre

We are delighted to present Patrick Tresset in conversation with Paul 
Squires as part of the Digital Design Drop-in programme in the Sackler 
Centre Digital Studio.

Patrick Tresset will be discussing the development of his distinctive 
robotic art projects and in the course of his conversation with Paul 
Squires, he will explore the origins of his work, his creation of a 
distinctive visual form, and the way that mediation of imagery by robots 
alters the relation of the artist to the artwork.

Patrick Tresset is currently a researcher at Goldsmiths, University of 
London. His artistic installations use what he calls clumsy robotics, 
and were recently on show at Tenderpixel. Patrick also co-directs with 
Prof. Fol Leymarie the Aikon-II project that investigates the sketching 
activity through computational modelling and robotics. Aikon-II is 
currently in part funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Aikon has received in 
the past year notable media attention including from the BBC, Wired, 
Blueprint, New Scientist, El-Mundo and more. http://www.aikon-gold.com/

Paul Squires is the Managing Director of Perini, an integrated digital 
business based in Oxford. It comprises of three brands, Perera (an open 
digital creative agency); Xpeso (an online display advertising solution 
for publishers), but is perhaps most well-known for Imperica, an online 
magazine covering the intersection of art, brands, advertising, and 
digital culture.
With its long-form editorial proposition that puts people first and is 
not afraid to be controversial, Imperica has covered topics from 
automata to dubstep (including Patrick Tresset's work).
