Experimenta Social #1:
Mapping And Tracking Global Systems

Wed 31 Aug 2016, 6PM – 8:30PM

Citt Williams is currently a PhD candidate at the Digital Ethnography Research Centre RMIT and is researching the behaviour of global systems such as climate change, animal migration and ecosystem modification. With a background in filmmaking, policy development and environmental science she has developed and shot independent documentaries in India, Nepal, Tajikistan, Siberia, Japan, Papua New Guinea, France, Borneo and Australia. From 2003-2005, Citt was the Executive Producer at the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association. http://teacup.net.au/citt-williams/

Joe Hamilton is a Melbourne-based artist working at the intersections of big data, global imaging and Capitalist Realism. Hamilton is part of a new movement of post-photographic artists that have less use for a camera than a database. Sourcing raw material from stock photography, open source mapping data and industrial 3D scanning techniques, Hamilton’s work uncovers a sense of contemporary visuality that privileges machine processing over the lens’ humanist inheritance. www.joehamilton.info

 

This event was curated by Emile Zile.

This project is supported by the Besen Family Foundation and the City of Melbourne, and presented in conjunction with ACMIx.
