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.

CASE STUDY

Visualising history

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.
