My Soul Is A Search Engine, Dolly Sen

Blog, Featured, News, News updates

Who am I? To be human is to ask questions, even about our very existence, but what if we asked google these questions instead? Would some people get better answers than others?
We look to our phones and devices for answers, but do they let us make ourselves anew, or just replicate the biases in the non-digital world?

My Soul Is A Search Engine was commissioned for Frequency 2019.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Dolly Sen is a writer, artist, and filmmaker. Her work aims to subvert perceptions around madness and being "othered". She’s trying to alter the faulty programming of society that thinks being mad is a virus and not a response to the system it finds itself in. No person is a spam folder.

A Confused Mass, Sophie Rogers

Inspired by the way sci-fi creates fictional universes, artist Sophie Rogers uses digital software to create navigable simulations of imagined places and scenes.

In August 2019 Sophie undertook a residency with Mansions of the Future, resulting in a digital commission to coincide with Frequency Festival.

This new online commission combines simulations of alternate realities with research into Donna Harraway’s writing on how the human and non-human are inextricably interlinked.

Industrial Quarry, Victoria Roberts

Artwork, Blog, Featured, News

Large scale black and white images show the magnitude of an industrial quarry and how it disrupts the surrounding landscape. A quarry can have multiple impacts on the environment; visual intrusion, dust, damaged landscape, loss of land and a deterioration in water quality.
Created in response to the Frequency Festival 2019 theme, 'Disruption=Cultural Reinvention', Robert’s photographs put the often-unearthly quarry landscapes front and centre, while her captions explore the work the industry is doing to restore this land to agriculture or woodland.
