About the event

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 6.45pm start.

Join us to explore the value of public digital art and digital making as part of the E17 Art Trail in collaboration with art collective Compiler.

Together with invited artists and producers, we will explore how digital art and hands-on digital making can help us connect with local places and culture, and engage with each other in meaningful ways. We will delve into how artist-led digital activities can be uniquely supported in the context of art trails and festival models. We will discuss the potential of innovative and interactive public art installations to inspire and connect new audiences.

This event is also a fantastic opportunity for local practitioners who work with or are interested in digital technologies to meet and network. So come along and be a part of this exciting conversation - we can't wait to see you there!

Jazmin Morris is a Creative Computing Artist and Educator based in Leeds. Her practice interrogates the historical trajectories of modern technology and critically speculates on the evolving landscape of human-computer interaction. Using free and open-source tools, Jazmin crafts participatory digital experiences that challenge power dynamics and hierarchies within cyberspace, with a particular emphasis on the nuanced processes of simulating culture and identity. Despite her critical approach, she retains a fond nostalgia for the early days of the internet and the classic gaming icon, Super Mario 64.

Kristina Pulejkova is a visual artist based in London. Her interdisciplinary practice is informed by science and technology. Kristina’s work explores how the use of technology might lead to greater forms of sustainability in human-nature relationships.

Compiler is a digital art and curation collective based in Walthamstow E17. It is led by Tanya Boyarkina and Oscar Cass-Darweish. They aim to create accessible works and events through which audiences with different levels of technical awareness can delve deeper into digital technologies that shape day-to-day experience..

This is part of a programme of artist development opportunities that Artillery is offering this year, thanks to support from Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund, funded by Westfield Stratford City and delivered by Foundation for Future London. In partnership with the William Morris Gallery.
