About Copy That?

How ‘true’ is the data ‘you’? Copy That? is the Data as Culture research and partnership theme for 2019-2020. From the myth of the perfect digital copy to the benefits and pitfalls of simulation, Copy That? raises questions about the purpose and trustworthiness of incessantly reproduced data. Newly commissioned artworks on display are: a hot-pink ‘puppet-robot-hybrid’ who wants to chat, Google mis-translated versions of William Blake’s poem Jerusalem, poems drawing on histories of human relationship alongside the blur and noise of technical evolutions and a digital pinball machine offering a neurodiverse experience of the city. Artists are Mr Gee, Alistair Gentry and Ben Neale, Edie Jo Murray & Harmeet Chagger-Khan. Further information at theodi.org/culture

Curated by Hannah Redler Hawes, Julie Freeman and Anna Scott. Design by Philpott Design.

Copy That? is open to the public by appointment from February 5 – June 30 2020, Monday – Friday, 10 am – 17.00. To book your visit email [email protected]

About Art Hack Practice in conversation panel

In Art Hack Practice: Critical Intersections of Art, Innovation and the Maker Movement, editors Bradbury and O’Hara have brought together twenty-six international authors who situate artists working within, alongside and parallel to maker culture at the front and centre, rather than on the fringe of serious art, design and innovation practices. This panel will explore the ways in which artists and curators explore tensions between territories, disciplines and sectors by brokering new ways of working between them.

The panel will be facilitated by Dr. Suzy O’ Hara. Participants are: Hannah Redler-Hawes (ODI), Marc Garett (Furtherfield), Inini Papadimitriou (FutureEverything)
