A Bunch of String: Technology and the Place of Relation

Garden Street: Upstairs

This talk will present a recent performance piece made by Chris Swithinbank with the musicians Yarn/Wire alongside work by Carolyn ChenSivan Cohen EliasJenna Lyle, and Sarah Pitan. Common among these performances is the use of string or thread to produce a communal place of relation each with its own characteristic implications, allowing us to consider the role of thread as a deceptively simple technology for intervening in social and material networks.
