For our 17 April lecture... Art, technology and human perception

ODI Artists in Residence Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead live and work in London and Kingussie in the highlands of Scotland. They make artworks and installations for galleries, and specific sites that include online spaces. Much of their recent work looks at networked global communications systems and how they are changing the way we all understand the world around us. Recent exhibitions include; Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Haus Lange, Krefeld; Dundee Contemporary Arts; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Carroll/Fletcher, London; Brighton Photo-biennial; and Haus der Kunst, Munich.

Having both studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, Jon now lectures at The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, while Alison is a senior researcher at University of Westminster and lectures in Fine Art at Goldsmiths University.

Come along to this lunchtime lecture to hear the artists introduce selected works currently on display at ODI and discuss their interest in using online sources in their work.
