Experiment and Play

  • Keynes Library Birkbeck, University of London WC1H 0PD (map)

Experiment and Play is an exploratory, interactive, and pedagogical examination of how play and performance have a vital role in experimentation. Poet practitioners explore the fascinating relationship between sound and experimentation in both a formal presentation of their art and research, as well as a series of truly engaging interactive activities for the audience.

Session 1: Dr Holly Pester, The Productive Sonics of Rest and Work

Session 2:  A session with PhD student Daniel O’Donnell on automatic writing

18.00-20.30, Keynes Library

Artless is an AHRC funded project at Birkbeck led by Professor Carol Watts and Dr Ben Cranfield. Shaped by PhD students and early career researchers from a variety of research backgrounds, the ArtLess group explores ways to unite the Arts and sciences to promote new, innovative, collaborative research. One of the project’s outreach programmes includes creating research exhibitions for Touring Exhibitions and Bury Art Museum. The group is currently working on a virtual exhibition, which will be pitched in Japan in 2015.
