Using Studio projects as a springboard for conversation, Jason Bruges discusses how art and technology combine to generate spectacle, entertainment and equally stimulate learning and new ideas.
He will share his future focused outlook to examine how digital interventions invigorate urban spaces and shape how we behave within them. He will examine how we can measure the impact of cultural interventions to help us understand their contribution to society and future environments. Looking closely at the context and commissioning of the Studio’s artworks, Bruges will uncover their wider role as cultural catalysts and agents of change.
Jason Bruges Studio works at the crossroads of large scale art installations, technology, architecture and interactive design, and has been commissioned to create a monumental installation for Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
Where Do We Go From Here? is a site-specific installation, which sees over 20 large re-purposed industrial robots, each fitted with light sources, mirrors, prisms and directional speakers, perform a choreographed interplay of light and shadow, accompanied by specially commissioned soundscapes. The installation runs in Hull’s Old Town from 1 Dec 2017 to 7 Jan 2018 excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
