Elspeth (Billie) Penfold is the producer of A different LENS, an interactive map, created with the artist group Thread and Word. The map uses locative media to create a rich interactive experience in and around Margate (UK). A different LENS is one of the shortlisted works for the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards.
Billie will talk about psychogeography and her walking practice, which seeks to create disruption more than resolution. Billie uses the digital map, through drawing and conversation, to explore how arts methods can bring a different kind of visibility and sensing to the experiences of the map entries in A different LENS, in ways that words alone cannot.
This cafe will run in a different format to previous Cafes – a Long Table based on an idea of artist Lois Weaver – in which a conversation is sparked between a revolving number of 12 guests at a Long Table – replenished by audience members who are invited to also hold conversations within the on-line chat.
To book – please visit our sister WalkListenCreate website – tickets €3-€5
