Penny Travlou & Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann interviewed live on Resonance FM.

Join Furtherfield on Resonance 104.4FM
Wednesday, March 23rd 2011.
Time 7-8pm (UK - GMT).
Hosts: Marc Garrett, Irini Papdimitriou & Jonathan Munro
Special Guests: Penny Travlou, Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann (Technology Will Save Us)

This critically acclaimed broadcast is every Wednesday evening at 7-8pm, a series of hour long live interviews with people working at the edge of contemporary practices in art, technology & social change; discussing events and controversies, exhibitions, artworks and their social contexts.

This week the tables are turned, and special guest Penny Travlou will be asking Marc Garrett questions about Furtherfield.

Penny Travlou is a cultural geographer and ethnographer and works as Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Edinburgh College of Art. Penny’s research is interdisciplinary with a special interest on the politics of public space, urban critical theory and digital ethnography. As a co-investigator at ELMCIP, Penny conducts an ethnographic study of networked creative communities. At the moment, Penny is doing her fieldwork on Furtherfield, spending time at the Furtherfield Gallery with the current crafters and residency artists (AOS) and setting up interviews with different crew members, crafters and visiting artists. Since ethnography is “a decoding operation”, Penny is learning the language, verbal and symbolic, of the Furtherfield community and, hopefully, to acquire an insider’s perspective.

Karsten Schmidt & Daniel Hirschmann, will be discussing their project 'Technology Will Save Us' with Irini Papdimitriou & Jonathan Munro. A haberdashery for technology and alternative education space dedicated to helping people to produce anth d not just consume technology.

Karsten Schmidt (aka toxi) is a London based computational designer merging code, design, art & craft skills. Originally from East Germany and starting in the deep end of the early 8-bit demo scene, for the past 2 decades he's been adopting a trans-disciplinary way of working and been laterally involved in a wide range of digital disciplines. Daniel Hirschmann is a South Africa born artist who uses technology, relationships and spontaneity to enable his artistic practice.
