Char Davies and Jakob Kudsk Steensen will participate in an artist talk where they will discuss recurring themes in their work such as environmental care. Interestingly, the artists belong to different generations and backgrounds, yet they explore similar themes using similarly visualization techniques such as laser scanning and photometry in actual forests. Davies and Kudsk Steensen have also been praised internationally for their work exploring virtual reality technology in art and innovation contexts.
The talk complies with Fotografisk Center’s agenda focusing on promoting dialogue between different generations of artists working with similar themes and techniques of representation as visual art. Furthermore, we wish to start discussions in the Nordics about the often-forgotten history of virtual reality, using virtual reality as a medium for artistic expression and the environmental implications of working with emergent technologies – as hardware and software become obsolete or are repaired through time.
