About this event

Artist Karen Bosy leads this workshop in which you’ll model and visualise personal concepts of public space. What does public space encompass, particularly with the explosion of online space? What are its uses? How do we conceptualize it?

We will be using a variety of visualization methods including video, text and web and to consider concepts of public space and place. Progressing from ideas of public space, the discussion will move from the general to the specific as the participants each contribute ideas and develop individual visual manifestos, using tissue paper and text, for their personal conceptualization of public space.

Finally, participants will be invited to develop their concepts through film, using phones, and the outcome will form a collective online artwork based in the public digital space.

Suitable for beginners and beyond.
