Granular Colloquium

  • 27th Jan 2018
  • 10 am - 5pm (Exhibition Viewing 5-7pm)
  • Project Space

Utilising a range of formats from audio-visual performance to talks, this event is an experiential investigation of noise as a granular entity. State changes are a central theme. Processes of disintegration and/or reintegration of material elements at a granular level are explored, both as the mode of transference between states (whether physical or digital) and the means by which a thing starts or ceases to be.

The colloquium will take place from 10 am – 5pm at The University of Greenwich, Stockwell Street Building and is held in association with the exhibition Granular: The Material Properties of Noise. The event will be followed by a private viewing of the exhibition.

Chaired by Dr. Stephen Kennedy, University of Greenwich, Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts
