Songsmith & the Living Will of Technological Artworks
Presenter: Jenna Burchell
In this talk, the artist Jenna Burchell shares her process and experience in the creation of her internationally acclaimed Songsmith project. She explores the nonsensical, yet beautiful, depth in technology when it is used with art; especially when it appears to act according to its own will. She poses the question; how can we merge art and technology into our physical world so that we can access knowledge otherwise invisible to us. Jenna Burchell is an award-winning South African artist whose practice explores the creation of peripheral archives. Burchell seeks to innovate ways to record, archive, and reveal ephemeral landscapes of experience, memory, and history.
Jenna Burchell is represented by Sulger-Buell Gallery in London and Everard Read Gallery in Johannesburg.
