During September and November I will be artist in residence at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, as part of the Embedded residencies commissioned by Sound and Music.
During my PhD research I have been thinking about a new phenomena that I call ‘comobility’, how people are mobile with each other at a distance, through locative mobile social networks. I was in Sweden last year to look at the work that Per Sandstrom does with Swedish Sami people who GPS track their reindeer. Reading about reindeer and their clicking hooves I realised that they were doing a version of comobility, but through sound.
Through the residency here in Bristol I will be making a prototype device to share movement at a distance through sound rather than through map based images. I will mainly be blogging about the work on the ished website – just follow the link above.
In the past I have only worked with sound through recorded interviews, so this is a new field for me to explore through the residency.
