Event details

We are very pleased to welcome Linda Hilfling to the Winchester School of Art on 16th June, Linda will give a lunchtime seminar entitled ‘Adding to the Paradox’ from 1:00 – 2:30 pm in the Harvard Suite. 'Through a discussion of my artistic research project this seminar unfolds paradoxes of il/legibility concerning the maintenance of legacy systems. A narrative emerges exploring how local spatialities in the West are materially dependent on a complex mixture of 'undead' software and machines in which a new kind of re-colonised information territory is constituted.' Please confirm attendance by emailing Sarah England on the address above.
