Tim Long to Speak at Digibury
- Wednesday, October 14, 2015, 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM Gulbenkian Theatre, University of Kent, Canterbury, CT2 7NB
- Dr Tim Long will be one of the speakers at October’s Digibury meet-up.
Dr Tim Long, “Hybrid bodies: bringing the digital to life.”
Digital Media, in its virtual form is untouchable, virtual, non-tactile. Yet animal and organic life is excluded, shut out from the virtual existence.
Through demonstrations and case studies Tim’s talk explores hybrid practices, that involves solid hand crafted wooden objects, and their relationship with the digital world and its all pervasive, virtual presence.
Dr Tim Long is an artist who makes objects that embrace hybrid processes integrating digital media into physical objects. He uses his works in multimedia and collaborative performances at live events, and also in public gallery settings. Tim studied Fine Art at St Martins and the Royal College of Art, and in 2012 was awarded a Phd from UCL for his practice-related thesis that discusses the relationship between subject and object in art practice. Tim is a Senior Lecturer and Programme Director of Digital Media at Canterbury Christ Church University.
