UCL MAL presents a residency at the Slade Research Centre, exploring ideas around futurisms, thresholds, liminality and displacement.

 

Our ambition is to transform the Slade Research Centre into a portal for exchange between cultural, cosmological and disciplinary points of view. This will take place through experimental workshops and presentations that focus on sound, VR, live collaboration and spaces of social intimacy.

 

In addition we will host an open session of our ongoing reading group ‘Anthropocene Futures’, and a public event built on MAL’s successful series of seminars (which have provided a platform for artists and academics to consider themes such as curating the digital, sonic ethnography, immersive alterity and sensory storytelling).

The Multimedia Anthropology Lab present at the TATE Exchange for a workshop examining technologies of capture and perspective exchange. What kind of futures are made possible through technologies of immersion? 

 

MAL present a ritual engagement with technologies of capture and perspective exchange. We say yes to holy words in pixel form; an object seance where we converse with the spirits of a VR headset, a KFS aura-healing device from Mongolia, a GoPro camera and a contact microphone.

Divinity can manifest itself in the form of technological media. We ask how ways of seeing and believing encode themselves in objects, and how these technological objects in turn shape us and give us access to worlds beyond our own.

UCL FESTIVAL OF CULTURE | UCL

pAULA Turmina, Deborah Tchoudjinoff, Sofie Mei Birkin, Maya Hope Chaldecott, Charlotte Klein, Cemil Hamazaoglu, Axel drioli,  Raffaella Fryer-Moreira, LINDA KLaASSEN, Hermione Spriggs, Grace Boyle + GUESTS

 

Curated Collectively BY THE MULTIMEDIA ANTHROPOLOGY LAB

This immersive exhibition presents contemporary research on ecological crisis and human futures, in an experimental collaboration by UCL’s Multimedia Anthropology Lab.

Over the course of the evening, immersive technologies, visual projections and textured soundscapes will present multiple narratives of the Anthropocene - the geological epoch in which we live. We will consider the diverse relationships between humans and their environments, and the multiple ways these relationships are understood as they transform. 

Bringing together interdisciplinary works conducted by anthropologists, artists, and sound designers, this event draws on immersive spatial audio, projection mapping, and VR to take us through the shifting ecologies of our times, while inviting us to speculate on alternative futures.

Multimedia Anthropology Now draws together anthropologists and artists from around the world in an exhibition of experimental multimedia research. Featuring sixteen different works, Multimedia Anthropology Now creatively explores the role that non-textual methods—such as film, sound, 360 video, projection mapping, drawing and graphic ethnography—can play in contemporary academic practice.  Multimedia Anthropology Now tests the limits of everyday media by bringing together cross-disciplinary works that break down institutional elitism to present themselves to anyone, anywhere in the form of a publicly available webpage.
