Geeks in Residence
A technology exploration
Culture meets technology
I was selected to take part in the 2012 Geeks in Residence project. Founded by Sync, a government funded prototyping and innovation programme for Scotlands cultural sector, the project paired technologists with cultural organisations to explore the creative application of technology. I was lucky to be paired with Stills, the Edinburgh based contemporary photography gallery and learning center.
Man Ray, Cornel Lucas, Richard Learoyd, David Goldblatt and Walker Evans are just a few of the highly revered photographers who have had work exhibited by Stills over the years. Subsequently there is an amazing archive of historic exhibition posters. I explored representing this rich artistic history through a digital visual timeline.
